Re: fractional reserve space not reclaim

This is correct.

You have set the Fractional_Reserve on the volume to 20%

20% of a 800G LUN is 168G, which is then reserved in the volume space for snapshots of this LUN.

If you do not need to snapshot the LUN, you can set the Fractional_Reserve on the volume to 0% and this will "free" the reserved space as well.

Hi Peter,

You are right. But, I don't understand why "Fractional_Reserve" don't free up space when I delete all snapshot?

Best regards,

Whether you have any snapshot or none, the fractional reserve setting just sets some space aside, for the case that you want to create a snpashot.

It's like a LUN-SnapShot-Guarantee... Which in your case of 20% is not really a guarantee, more a promise

I actually agree with Chung - I would expect no impact from fractional reserve if there are no snapshots in the volume.

I vaguely remember some earlier discussions on Community where a 'hidden' snapshot created by de-duplication process was causing something similar.
