Applies to

  • Clustered Data ONTAP

Issue

  • Users are unable to open files from a share
  • Users are unable to create files on a share

Client Error Messages:

  • Can't read from the source file or disk
  • A device attached to the system is not functioning

 

By performing this, there is a risk of virus infecting the CIFS shares as the virus scanner is having issues. It will not successfully scan and will allow user the read, write, or create operations after a vscan timeout.
