Viewing details about SMB/CIFS shares

Contributors

You can view details about all SMB/CIFS shares, such as the share name, junction path, containing objects, security settings, and export policies defined for the share. Use the Health: All SMB Shares view to see all SMB shares on all monitored clusters, and use the Storage VM / Health details page to view all SMB shares on a specific storage virtual machine (SVM).

What you’ll need

  • CIFS license must be enabled on the cluster.

  • Network interfaces serving the SMB/CIFS shares must be configured.

  • You must have the Operator, Application Administrator, or Storage Administrator role.

Note

Shares in folders are not displayed.
