NetApp vFiler Question

I have a site with a NetApp FAS2220 running 8.2.3 7 Mode that has a vFiler configured on it. I also have another site that has a NetApp FAS2520 running 8.2.3 7 Mode that doesn't have a vFiler configured that I can see, at least the vFiler selection doesn't show up under OnCommand System Manager. We are running Hyper-V Hosts off both controllers as well as some LUNS for DBs and CIFS shares. Is one of these likely configured wrong?

You do not need vfilers to deploy volumes on the Netapp, without the vfiler it is mounting the volumes directly from the controller itself (vfiler0).  vfilers allow you to create a multi-tenant environment but are optional.

You can create vfiler DR if you would like to create a DR environment, link below for how
