Answer

  • Up to ONTAP 9.7,ONTAP creates a share named "admin$" which appears to be a data share.
  • However, it is not a data share and this share cannot access filesystem objects.
  • From ONTAP 9.8 it is no longer created admin$ share by default.
  • This change does not affect system operation.
