SMB and NFS multiprotocol configuration overview

Contributors netapp-forry NetAppZacharyWambold

Using the ONTAP System Manager classic interface (ONTAP 9.7 and earlier), you can quickly set up both SMB and NFS access to a new volume on either a new or existing storage virtual machine (SVM).

Use this procedure if you want to configure access to a volume in the following way:

  • NFS access will be through NFSv3, not NFSv4 or NFSv4.1.

  • You want to use best practices, not explore every available option.

  • Your data network uses the default IPspace, the default broadcast domain, and the default failover group.

    If your data network is flat, using these default objects ensures that LIFs will fail over correctly in the event of a link failure. If you are not using the default objects, you should refer to Network Management for information on how to configure LIF path failover.

  • LDAP, if used, is provided by Active Directory.

If you want details about the range of ONTAP NFS and SMB protocol capabilities, see the following documentation:
