Configuring and applying file security on NTFS files and folders using the CLI

There are several steps you must perform to apply NTFS file security when using the ONTAP CLI. First, you create an NTFS security descriptor and add DACLs to the security descriptor. Next you create a security policy and add policy tasks. You then apply the security policy to a storage virtual machine (SVM).

About this task

After applying the security policy, you can monitor the security policy job and then verify the settings on the applied file security.
