Answer

  • Qtree names can be no more than 64 characters in length. In addition, using some special characters in qtree names, such as commas and spaces, can cause problems with other Data ONTAP capabilities, and should be avoided.
  • The Volume junction path length cannot be more than 255 characters.
  • Beginning with ONTAP 9.5, support for 4-byte UTF-8 encoded names enables the creation and display of the file, directory, and tree names that include Unicode supplementary characters outside the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP).
