Assigning export policies to qtrees

Instead of exporting an entire volume, you can export a specific qtree on a volume to make it directly accessible to clients. You can use System Manager to export a qtree by assigning an export policy to the qtree. You can assign an export policy to one or more qtrees from the Qtrees window.

Steps

  1. Click Storage > Qtrees.
  2. From the Qtrees on SVM list, select the storage virtual machine (SVM) on which the qtrees that you want to export reside.
  3. Select one or more qtrees for which you want to assign an export policy, and then click Change Export Policy.
  4. In the Export Policy dialog box, either create an export policy or select an existing export policy.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Verify that the export policy and its related export rules that you assigned to the qtrees are displayed in the Details tab of the appropriate qtrees.
