Modifying General Properties of a File System

Modifying General Properties of a File System

This operation enables you to modify general properties of a file system, such as names and descriptions.


At least one file system is created.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Provisioning > File System.
  3. Select a file system whose general properties you want to modify and click Properties.

    The File System Properties dialog box is displayed.

  4. Modify general properties of the file system.

    1. In the Name text box, enter a file system name.

      The name must meet the following requirements so that the file system is available to host applications:

      • The name must be unique.
      • The name can contain letters of any language, digits, and underscores (_).
      • The name can be 1 to 255 characters in length.
    2. In the Description text box, enter the description of the file system.
    3. Change the file system type in the Type drop-down list.
      • Thin file system:

        A thin file system is configured with an initial capacity when being created and dynamically allocated required storage resources when its available capacity is insufficient.

      • Thick file system:

        A thick file system is allocated a fixed capacity of storage resources according to the capacity specified when being created using the automatic provisioning technology.

    4. Change the security mode in the Security Mode drop-down list. Security Mode only applies to V300R006C60 and later versions.
      • Mixed

        Applies to the scenario in which both CIFS and NFS users can access and control the file system. Either CIFS or NFS permissions are valid. The latest configured permissions prevail.

      • Native

        Applies to the scenario in which Windows NT ACLs control CIFS users' permissions and UNIX mode bits control NFS users' permissions. In this mode, Windows NT ACLs and UNIX mode bits will neither affect nor synchronize with each other.

        • For CIFS share access, the system checks whether a Windows user has the access permission based on the Windows NT ACLs.
        • For NFS share access, the system checks whether a UNIX user has the access permission based on the UNIX mode bits.
    5. Click Apply.

      The Execution Result dialog box is displayed indicating that the operation succeeded.

    6. Click Close.

  5. Click OK.
