NetApp Data ONTAP 8.2 Cluster mode - FQDN & SMI-S

Currently Being Moderated


Hope someone can help me out..


I'm using a NetApp Data ONTAP 8.2 in Cluster mode.
Created a vserver, added CIFS and joined to the domain, everything works well.


Installed SMI-S agent on server, connected the Netapp controller through the SMI-S agent to Virtual Machine Manager.
Able to create/delete shares etc, fine so far...


The problem is when adding a share to the controller, Virtual Machine Manager shows the share path as "\\NETBIOSNAME\Sharename" but Virtual Machine Manager would like a FQDN share name like "\\NETBIOSNAME.DOMAIN.LOCAL\Sharename"

DNS in Active directory is fine, also can browse the fileshare using the Netbiosname and FQDN.


When doing a "Get-NcCifsShare", the "servername" variable of the share also shows as Netbiosname and not FQDN.


How can I let the controller always use FQDN when showing information about CIFS and shares?


Thanks in advance.
