Network Share Namespace Create
Network Share Namespaces group shares together into a folder which is globally accessible across a selected group of appliances. The group of appliances can include all the appliances in a grid or just a subset of appliances/storage systems in a given grid. Network Share Namespaces use the Microsoft DFS technology to redirect SMB/CIFS clients to the correct appliance where the selected Network Share resides. NFSv4 clients are directed to the correct appliance for any given Network Share using NFSv4 Referrals. Network Share Namespaces work together with Highly-Available(HA) storage pools. Accessing network shares in HA pools via a DFS or NFSv4 referrals will always redirect to a Virtual Network Interface (VIF) associated with the HA storage pool for any given Network Share.
