Snapvault [dfm] fails when folume is full

I have noticed that snapvault updates  fail when active volume is full even though the snapshot space is empty. when i increase volume size by say i 1 G it goes through.

why is some space needed in active volume ? is there any ratio to number of files inthe volume.

Can you tell us the o/p for snapvault status -l / -s ... if you can ?

Re: Snapvault [dfm] fails when folume is full

Snapshot space can only be used for taking snapshot and cannot be used for user data writes or snapvault update. You will need to have data space in your volume to succeed the snapvault update.
