I have a ONTAP 8.1.2 device running in 7-mode. I have 3.2 TB of CIFS data with deuplication savings of 720 GB. I suspect I will get more with compression. I have already enabled inline compression, but need to compress existing data.
My understanding of the steps is as follows:
1) Delete all snaphots
2) Turn off active snapshots and nightly deduplication tasks
3) Run compression command: volume efficiency start -vserver vs1 -volume DataVol1 -scan-old-data true
4) Track progress of compression with this command: volume DataVol1 -fields progress
5) Once it is complete, I can re-enable the Snapshot and deduplication tasks
So, besides the risk of not be able to access old snapshot data, does this procedure look fine?

It appears the commands I got from the data compression and storage efficiency guide won't work as volume is not available in my version of ONTAP.
Is there a way to do this with 8.1.2 7-mode?
