I've recently taken over an EMC VNX5300 SAN and I would like to enable snapshots on a CIFS share so that users can restore previous versions of files (as I have configured on numerous Netapp filers in the past).

I've found some documentation online that implies this can be done, but I could use some help with how to configure the snapshots and if anythign else is required so that the "previous version" tab can be enabled in Windows.
