Access Based Enumeration for Netapp shares

To enable acccess-based enumeration (ABE) on a netapp share we need the commandline. Just connect with putty or something else to your netapp where the share resides.

To set ABE to on, use the nest command:

cifs shares -change sharename -accessbasedenum

To turn ABE off, use the command:

cifs shares -change sharename -noaccessbasedenum

Like Christoph says in the comments you can enable ABE from the commandline tool abecdm.exe just from a windows server, so you don’t need the commandline from a Netapp.

If you do not have this tool you can download it here:

  1. You could also use abecmd.exe from Microsoft. It works on NetApp controllers and can be used by Windows Admin without requiring access to the CLI of the NetApp controller.

  2. I searched for a while and never found an answer to how to enable this on all existing shares on a filer. Then I stumbled across the answer. You can use * in netapp commands. Fantastic, so if you want to enable ABE on all your existing shares, simply type:

    cifs shares -change * -accessbasedenum

    Hope that helps someone who is searching for this.

    but I had to share it with someone!

    and giving the buyer tips on what direction to go inside
    a situation and what must be covered by the retailer in terms to some product going wrong.
    Larger organizations generally stricter, expressly written rules on etiquette.

    In addition, Wikipedia can be be extremely helpful
    any time that the student encounters an expression,
    name, or any other little bit of information that’s unfamiliar.

  5. Ever since then, Kitchen – Aid mixers have been the gold standard in
    home mixers. These include an ice cream maker, juicer, slicer, strainer, and ravioli maker.
