Access to Netapp Volume from Windows and Linux

I have read the document on Multiprotocol data access using CIFS, NFS, HTTP. My understanding is that this implementation of mixed mode is not ideal on the Netapp Filer. I have been told the same volume can be accesses on the windows and Linux side without mixed mode and using CIFS. This would exclude third party applications such Samba and SFU. What might this implementation be?

create the volume in unix , ntfs or mixed mode.
create qtree under it in mixed mode.
create the export on the directory you want to share.
create cifs share on the directory.
connect to the filer using computer management console ( same as connecting to windows host )
go to the create share properties and go share tab
change the permissions to everyone - full control
goto security tab and give permissions to the owner.
change ownership from the unix machine as well
