We have got the newly released NetApp Storage FAS 2220 appliance with 6x1TB SATA HDDs.
We need to configure it as CIFS shared drive with RAID. Could anyone provide us with detailed steps on how to do it?
Much appreciated!

    Netapp usually you would need to check whether You have the netapp licensed for cifs.
    License to see all installed licenses on the netapp.
    Points to supported protocols and cifs is one.

    Accepted Solution

    1.The new buildouts do not have all the licensing.  Login to the website (create account if needed) and register the netapp.  Obtain license keys first

    2.  Run through setup and configure controller per best practice if you haven't done this already

    .The link below is to a N series Netapp (IBM) and will work with the FAS2220.  Once you have joined the controllers to the domain you can use Microsoft Computer Management to connect to the Netapp and view and modify shares as you would on a Windows system.
    @arnold: The link is for filerview which is no longer available. This will need to be done manually.
