Hi Experts,

now I have shares on my Fileserver Cluster.
I want to migrate all shares to my new NETAPP storage.
I have created a volume \vol\Cifs
Then I have created a share called EDV with path \vol\Cifs

This means all data is on \vol\Cifs

When I migrate now a second share , like Finance, to the volume, then I have all folders in \vol\Cifs.
But for restore it´s heavy to find the folders, because all folders under \vol\Cifs

What is best practice here ?

It depends.  I like to keep as many shared folders under the same Netapp volume to get the most of deduplication, otherwise if you put the data into a different volume it will only dedupe what is on that Netapp volume.
Another way to do this by department, application type, etc..

There are several ways to do this.

1.  Create 1 Netapp volume and create subfolders each being a share
2.  Create multiple netapp Volumes and create 1 share per volume.

Deduplication is per Netapp volume, so each volume is being deduped independently.

Are you using Ontap 7 mode or CDOT?
