DFM/PM 4.0.2 fails to provision secondary volume on FAS6280 64bit aggr with dedupe enabled

Hi community (and devs),

I have a problem at a customer with a provisioning policy in PM.

It is a provisioning policy for snapvault secondary volumes. PM should provision the SV destination volumes automatically (with dedupe enabled on the destination).

The destination filer is a FAS6280 - running 8.0.2, and the destination ressource pool is a 64bit aggregate.

The problem happens when deduplication is enabled in the policy for the secondary volumes. If Dedupe is enabled, PM errors with "the destination's dedupe limit is 512GB", and fails to provision new secondary volumes (which need to be larger that 512GB).

AFAICT a 6280 should not have a 512GB limit for deduplicated volumes, right? ;-)

DFM Version 4.0.2D2 - ONTAP 8.0.2 DFM plugins are installed (though DFM was not restarted yet after installing the plugin) - 64bit aggregate on the secondary.

We also have a FAS3160 as another secondary, here the same policy works fine (and provisions secondary volumes >2 TB without that error). On the 6280 it only works without dedupe enabled in the policy...

Can anyone reproduce this? New Bug? Workaround?

Thanks for any hints,

Mark

Re: DFM/PM 4.0.2 fails to provision secondary volume on FAS6280 64bit aggr with dedupe enabled

Hello Mark,

This is one very common problem that is being reported to us. The thing is DFM 4.0.2D2 doesn't recognize FAS6280 as a valid filer model and hence defaults to 512 MB. This support should be available with the OnCommand version 5.0 which is going to be available very soon.

You are right the Dudupe limit for 6280 with 8.0.2 is 16TB and not 512 GB.

The concerned burt is 508580:

In the mean time you can follow the following steps and it should go ahead fine:

1. Set the deduplication limit for FAS380 with ONTAP 8.0.2 in the following way.

$dfpm reslimit create "8.0.2" "FAS3280"

Created new resource limit (215).

2. Set Maximum deduplication size of FAS3280 and ONTAP version 8.0.2 (in GB)

$dfpm reslimit set 215 maxDedupeSizeInGB=16384

3. Verify the deduplication limit set for FAS3280 with ONTAP 8.0.2

$dfpm reslimit get 215

Id                                                                             215

ONTAP Version                                                                  8.0.2

Product Model                                                                  FAS3280

Availability                                                                   None

Maximum number of FlexVols per storage controller

Maximum CPU utilization threshold of storage controller

Maximum Disk utilization threshold of an aggregate

Maximum Deduplication size of a storage system model and ONTAP version (in GB) 16384

4. Done. You are ready to go.

warm regards,

Abhishek

Hello Sinhaa,

thank you very much fort he detailed and quick reply!

Will try that with customer as soon as possible. I think your meant „FAS6280“, not „FAS3280“, right?

Thanks again,

Mark
