Configure security styles on FlexVol volumes

Contributors

You configure the FlexVol volume security style to determine the type of permissions used for data on FlexVol volumes of the storage virtual machine (SVM).

Steps
  1. Perform one of the following actions:

    If the FlexVol volume…​ Use the command…​

    Does not yet exist

    volume create and include the -security-style parameter to specify the security style.

    Already exists

    volume modify and include the -security-style parameter to specify the security style.

    The possible options for the FlexVol volume security style are unix, ntfs, or mixed.

    If you do not specify a security style when creating a FlexVol volume, the volume inherits the security style of the root volume.

    For more information about the volume create or volume modify commands, see Logical storage management.

  2. To display the configuration, including the security style of the FlexVol volume you created, enter the following command:

    volume show -volume volume_name -instance
