Before we can access the storage from client, we need to setup the protocol. In this example I will show you how to configure SVM CIFS Protocol. We also need a Active Directory (AD) in order to enable CIFS Protocol. I will used my existing AD for this example.

Click on SVM that you just create.

Click on SVM Setting.

Under Protocols, click CIFS.

At Configuration Tab, click on Setup.

You will received a warning where the SVM does not have any data LIF configured. You check this post on how to configure SVM data lif.
