You can change the share name, the share type (CIFS, NFS, multi-protocol), service level, capacity, snapshot policy, export policy, Access Control List (ACL), and tags.

Note Using this method, you can move your shares to different performance levels if available. You can change the share type only if the server supports the respective services.
Before you begin

The file share must be in the operational state. For understanding volume statuses and the steps to be taken to make them operational, see View disks and Object states

Steps
  1. View the Shares list.

  2. Locate the share in the list and click the Edit icon for that share. (For details about working with items in lists, see List view actions).

  3. Make any changes as required; for field descriptions, see Create a new file share.

  4. Click Done. This creates a job to modify the share.

After you finish

Modify share is run as an asynchronous job. You can:

  • Check the status of the job in the jobs list. For information about tracking jobs, see here.
