Enabling or disabling ODX

You can enable or disable ODX on storage virtual machines (SVMs). The default is to enable support for ODX copy offload if SMB 3.0 is also enabled.

Before you begin

SMB 3.0 must be enabled.

About this task

If you disable SMB 3.0, ONTAP also disables SMB ODX. If you reenable SMB 3.0, you must manually reenable SMB ODX.

Procedure

  1. Set the privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced
  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    If you want ODX copy offload to be... Enter the command...
    Enabled vserver cifs options modify -vserver vserver_name -copy-offload-enabled true
    Disabled vserver cifs options modify -vserver vserver_name -copy-offload-enabled false
  3. Return to the admin privilege level: set -privilege admin

Example

The following example enables ODX copy offload on SVM vs1:

cluster1::> set -privilege advanced
