Creating qtrees

Qtrees enable you to manage and partition your data within the volume. You can use the Create Qtree dialog box in System Manager to add a new qtree to a volume on your storage system.

Steps

  1. Click the SVMs tab.
  2. Select the SVM, and then click Manage.
  3. Click the Qtrees tab.
  4. Click Create.
  5. In the Details tab of the Create Qtree dialog box, type a name for the qtree.
  6. Select the volume to which you want to add this qtree.
    The Volume browse list includes only volumes that are online.
  7. If you want to disable oplocks for the qtree, clear the Enable Oplocks for files and directories in this Qtree check box.
    By default, oplocks are enabled for each qtree.
  8. If you want to change the default inherited security style, select a new one.
    The default security style of the qtree is the security style of the volume that contains the qtree.
  9. If you want to change the default inherited export policy, select an existing export policy or create a new export policy.
    The default export policy of the qtree is the export policy assigned to the volume that contains the qtree.
  10. If you want to restrict the disk space usage, click the Quotas tab.
    1. If you want to apply quotas on the qtree, click Qtree quota, and then specify the disk space limit.
    2. If you want to apply quotas for all the users on the qtree, click User quota, and then specify the disk space limit.
  11. Click Create.
  12. Verify that the new qtree you created is included in the list of qtrees in the Qtrees window.
