From the left navigation menu, select Element Store and then Views.
Click to open the Actions menu for the view you want to edit and select Edit.
Change the view settings as needed:
The full path from the top level of the storage system on the cluster to the location exposed by the view.
Select the protocol(s) you want to expose the view to. You can select both NFS and SMB, or either one or the other.
SMB Share Name
Required for SMB shares.
If this is the first time you're exposing the view to SMB, enter a name for the SMB share. The name cannot include the following characters: /\:|<>*?"
If the view was already configured with an SMB share, you cannot modify the share name.
Optional for NFS exports. Enabled if NFS is selected in the Protocols field.
An alias for the mount path of an NFS export. An alias must begin with a forward slash ("/") and must consist of only ASCII characters.
Select a view policy. To see details of configured view policies, go to the View Policies tab. For more information about configuring view policies, see the relevant workflow:
If the directory does not already exist in the file system, enable the Create Directory setting to create the directory.
Click Update to save your changes.
To modify a view via the VAST CLI, use the view modify command.
