I always configured 7-Mode systems with "nosnapdir on" (because quite a lot of programs were confused by .snapshot directory and its content) but still was able to explicitly mount any snapshot for purposes of restore. This seems to be no more possible in cDOT - snapdir-access is apparently all or nothing for NFS clients; either I can mount snapshots but also get .snapshot visible, or .snapshot is hidden but then I cannot mount them. This is different in case of CIFS where access and visibility are controlled separately.
I just verified that this is still the case under ONTAP 9.0RC1.
Anyone knows some (hidden) knob that provides 7-Mode semantic on NFS?
With best regards
