one mount point for 3 different volumes on Netapp...

Posted on 2011-05-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We have a Netapp filer and the volumes have to stay under 1TB in order for things like de-dupe to work and qtrees. That's fine, but our fileserver stuff is bigger than that so we have share1, share2, and share3 that should all be part of the same structure to get around that.

I was sure that there was a way with something like MSDFS to present all three points as one share....does anyone have some instructions on how to do that?

Our servers are 2008 R2 and then the filer is a Netapp FAS2040...

    it's synching with a FAS2020 at our COLO...that's where the limit comes from.
