The Shares list displays the file shares belonging to the selected Tenant. To view the list, select FILE SERVICES > Shares from the menu.

The file shares that are already a part of your existing environment and belong to the storage VMs configured in your NetApp Service Engine, can also be viewed on this screen and be managed as a part of your NetApp Keystone Flex Subscription (Flex Subscription) services. The file shares provisioned outside of the NetApp Service Engine are periodically imported and listed on this page with appropriate status codes.

If the imported file shares are in acceptable standards of NetApp Service Engine, that is all the parameters that are required for making the shares operational are available, they are imported with the status as Operational and can be directly managed through NetApp Service Engine. However, some shares might not be in the same standard as the existing shares on NetApp Service Engine. After import, these file shares are categorized with Imported or Non-Standard status. For understanding volume statuses and the steps to be taken to make them operational, see Object states

The Shares list displays simple information about each share. For more information about how to use the features of a list, see List view.
