ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

volume mount

Mount a volume on another volume with a junction-path

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


The volume mount command mounts a volume at a specified junction path.


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver Name

This specifies the Vserver on which the volume is located.

-volume <volume name> - Volume Name

This specifies the volume that is to be mounted.

-junction-path <junction path> - Junction Path Of The Mounting Volume

This specifies the junction path of the mounted volume. The junction path name is case insensitive and must be unique within a Vserver’s namespace.

[-active {true|false}] - Activate Junction Path

This optionally specifies whether the mounted volume is accessible. The default setting is false . If the mounted path is not accessible, it does not appear in the Vserver’s namespace.

[-policy-override {true|false}] - Override The Export Policy

This optionally specifies whether the parent volume’s export policy overrides the mounted volume’s export policy. The default setting is false .


The following example mounts a volume named user_tsmith on a Vserver named vs0. The junction path for the mounted volume is /user/tsmith. The mounted volume is accessible, and the mounted volume’s export policy is not overridden by the parent volume’s export policy.

node::> volume mount -vserver vs0 -volume user_tsmith
-junction-path /user/tsmith -active true -policy-override false
