Using Powershell to create a Netapp Volume

I am attempting to automate a task to create a volume on our Netapp Filer using the Powershell Toolkit.  So far it is fairly easy, however one item that I am unable to find is how to set, or even check the Security Style (NTFS, UNIX, MIXED).

Can anyone tell me how do I check this, and/or change this setting using Powershell?

New-NaVol -Name "myvol1" -Aggregate "aggr1" -Size "5g" 
Set-NAQtree -Path "/vol/myvol1" -SecurityStyle "NTFS"

Open in new window

You use the Qtree command to set security style on both volumes and qtrees.

To check the security style, use this:
Get-NaQtree "/vol/myvol1" | select SecurityStyle

Open in new window

It seems a little odd that you would use a qtree command for both a Volume, and a Qtree.  Either way though, those were exactly what I was looking for.

thank you.

I know it's confusing, but technically the root of the volume is a qtree as well.
