I am running into a situation whereby I upgrade the DOT to 8.0.2P6 and license the compression.
But, when I proceed to enable the compression on the volume I hit with this.
sis config -C true -l true /vol/test
config: Invalid option - C
sis config [ [ [ -s schedule ] | [ -m minimum_blocks_shared ] ] <path> ...]
- Sets up, modifies and retrieves schedule and minimum blocks shared
value of SIS volumes.
Anyone has similar experiences or I am missing something.By right after putting the license I should be able to use the sis config command to enable compression on volume, right?

I don't think enabling compression via the sis command is available until ONTAP 8.1. The commands for volume compression are under the "vol" command. I would advise you take a look at the Storage Management Guide for 8.0.2.

yes.. a nice change in 8.1 for all in the same sis command. For 8.0 you first need a PVR approved by NetApp, then vol options volname compression on, then vol compress start [-d -a -s]...options
