How to know the volume creation date..?

Hi,

We have some stale volumes with same names on different filers.  We want to know the exact date when these volumes are created.

Is there any command or tool to identify this.?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Vijay

Re: How to know the volume creation date..?

Hi,

One way you can find out when a volume was created is using powershell toolkit. After you connect to the controller use the cmdlet Mount-NaController, then browse the controller using "cd controller_name_or_ip:", "cd vol", "ls". You should get a list of all the volumes and the "Created" column shows the date when a vol was created.

hope that helped,

Hi Vijay,

On filer command mode please use the below command to see the creation time/modificaiton time and last access time of volume.

<filer> flexcache fstat <volume name>

If you will use the above command then you need not to mount the volume and use the command called cd

Hope this is the perfect answer what you are looking.
