Description

There is support for vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) in clustered Data ONTAP; however, there are some requirements for the export policy rules for this to work:

  1. The relevant volume needs to allow the calls, which are nfsv4 calls
  2. The root user cannot be squashed (should remain as root) and nfsv4 should be allowed in all junction parent volumes
  3. The option for VAAI support needs to be set on the relevant NFS server.
