'vol size' does not show correct size after shrink of snapmirror destination (done through source)

Maybe this is just in the ONTAP simulator, but after shrinking source and destination volumes (the latter through a snapmirror update) the 'vol size' on destination does not show the correct size (I followed the steps in KB29832 ), e.g. after shrinking volume testvolsrc from 110MB and a successful snapmirror update, I see:

On source: vol size testvolsrc: vol size: Flexible volume 'voltestsrc' has size 100m.

On destination: vol size testvol: vol size: Flexible volume 'voltest' has size 110m.

FilerView, df etc on destination does show the correct size in destination volume 'testvol'.

Did I overlook something - has anybody of you an idea?

Kind regards,

Soren

You need to break the snapmirror and resize the destination manually, then resync the snapmirror

that is my experience - I'd like to know if there is a better way!

Hi,

This might seem counter-intuitive, but the sizes of the destination volume for volume snapmirror will always "look" the same if the destination is of equal size (+ a few MB) or larger, no matter what the actual size is.  You need to use vol size -b (if I remember correctly) to get the actual size of the destination volume.  You can always resize the destination volume manually, but if you go below the source volume size (or adjust the source to be larger than the destination) the mirror won't update.  So if you want to adjust the test volume down a bit, then just 'vol size testvol 112m' and you're done.

Its vol status -b
