Editing share settings

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to modify the settings of a share such as the symbolic link settings, share access permissions of users or groups, and the type of access to the share. You can also enable or disable continuous availability of a share over Hyper-V, and enable or disable access-based enumeration (ABE). Starting with System Manager 9.6, continuous availability is supported for FlexGroup volumes.

  1. Click Storage > Shares.

  2. Select the share that you want to modify from the list of shares, and then click Edit.

  3. In the Edit Share Settings dialog box, modify the share settings as required:

    1. In the General tab, enable continuous availability of a share over Hyper-V.

      Enabling continuous availability permits SMB 3.0 and clients that support SMB 3.0 to open files persistently during nondisruptive operations. Files that are opened persistently are protected from disruptive events such as failover, giveback, and LIF migration.

    2. In the Permissions tab, add users or groups, and then assign permissions to specify the type of access.

    3. In the Options tab, select the required options.

  4. Click Save and Close.

  5. Verify the changes that you made to the selected share in the Shares window.
