Creating and managing SMB shares

To configure an SMB3 share on a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), you can use either the SnapCenter user interface or PowerShell cmdlets. Using the cmdlets is recommended because it enables you to take advantage of templates provided with SnapCenter to automate share configuration.

The templates encapsulate best practices for volume and share configuration. You can find the templates in the Templates folder in the installation folder for the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Windows.

Tip: If you feel comfortable doing so, you can create your own templates following the models provided. You should review the parameters in the cmdlet documentation before creating a custom template.
