Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • FlexGroup Volumes


The following warning is received while creating a FlexGroup volume:
Warning: You are attempting to create a FlexGroup volume in Vserver "vs0", which currently uses 32-bit FSIDs and file IDs of both NFSv3 and NFSv4.x. This could result in collisions between different file IDs on the FlexGroup volume. Modify the Vserver to use 64-bit NFSv3 and NFSv4.x identifiers before using the FlexGroup volume with the commands

"set advanced; vserver nfs modify -vserver lc-vserver -v3-64bit-identifiers enabled -v4-64bit-identifiers enabled".
