Sometimes you need to completely wipe the “cifs setup” configuration. For example, I’m currently writing some documentation and need a clean cifs setup to start from scratch.


cylon> cifs terminate<br /> cylon> priv set advanced<br /> cylon*> mv /etc/cifsconfig_setup.cfg /etc/cifsconfig_setup.cfg.bak<br /> cylon*> priv set<br /> cylon> cifs restart<br /> CIFS not configured. Use "cifs setup" to configure<br /> cylon> cifs setup

I found the steps via a search on NetApp’s forums. Here’s the thread for more background: How to Remove CIFS from a Filer?
