Description

This article describes the procedure that should be followed to quickly set up NFS access for UNIX hosts to files contained in volumes in clustered Data ONTAP.

Perform the steps described in this article, if you want to configure NFS in the following ways :

  • NFS access through NFSv3, NFSv4, NFSv4.1 and pNFS
  • Use best practices, not explore every available option
  • Do not want to read a lot of conceptual background
  • Run the Data ONTAP command-line interface and not OnCommand System Manager
  • Creating FlexVol volumes, and not Infinite Volumes
  • UNIX file permissions will be used to secure the new volume
