Answer

In some cases, CIFS shares lost post migrating to C-mode through 7MTT
 
Unfortunately NetApp does not have a standalone tool that can migrate CIFS shares from 7-mode to C-mode.
This will need to be done manually.
 
Since 7MTT cutover is complete, there is no real way to go back and correct the end result.
The customer will need to either Start over or Manually create the shares.
Manually create the CIFS shares would probably be the better option.
