Snapmirrored Vol not showing size increase

I increased a destination Volume size by 50GB through filer.  It shows Total Size of volume has increase, but Total Capacity has not.
This is a snapmirrored destination.

Source volume not increased yet.

What does this mean?  How can I get corrected?

Re: Snapmirrored Vol not showing size increase

After you increase the source and complete an update the target will show the additional space. There is a vol option "fs_size_fixed" set to on on the target that matches the target size to the source even if bigger. Space is still added to the volume but not reported until the source is increased and updates.

ah...thank you very much.

Also when you break a mirror and want to be able to grow a volume “vol options volname fs_size_fixed off” … when you resync it turns back on the target anyway, but if you ever need to recognize more space on a broken mirror do that.
