For a temporarly reason I extend a volume and LUN size to 180Go (original 100Go). In my Windows 2008R2 Server I extend the volume too.
When I finish my operation I wanted decrease the size to return in the original state.
In Windows, I reduce the volume to 100Go, in the disk manager it is ok. The partition doing 100Go and see 80Go of not allocated space.
In NetApp OnCommand System Manager the free space of the LUN stay at 25Go... why ??? Too, in my 100Go Windows partition I have 48Go free.
Finally I cannot reduce the lun size because System Manager see only 25Go of available space
Can you explain and help me this situation ?

welcome to communites..
1.Did you write into the lun? (write and delete operations done?)
2.Does your volume has a snapshot enabled on it.
3.Do you see snapshots on that volume?
4.Are you disconnecting the lun and then resizing it?
For online resizing the lun on windows i would use the Snapdrive tool.
