I am deploying an HNAS 5200 2-node cluster at a customer new to Hitachi NAS. They need to create about 80 CIFS shares and start migrating from NetApp and severla Windows  servers. they would like to create those shares using a script and an associated .csv file or similar  with something like

share_name, filesystem_name, vvol, quota_values, owner, etc

I was wondering if anyone have some script which could be used (with modifications) for such purpose.

Hello George

Have a look at our Knowledge base here, I believe you can do this with a quick shell, PowerShell or python script.

I have some colleagues like @Johann du Toit that might have some specific examples for you.

You would have to look at the API for how it creates shares, etc - as it doing what is requested will take multiple calls.

Internally within our QA/dev team, we do not have anything available to fulfill this request.
