I have a fairly large volume on a primary FAS3140 running 8.0, this volume is Snapvaulted to a secondary filer which is a FAS2240 running 8.1.1.
Because of the primary size, and the retention required on the secondary, I have been forced to resize the secondary volume in order to get rid of the space warning in DFM.
But this just leaves me with this conformance error, which I don't understand... I think this has to be because DFM isn't aware that 20TB actually is possible on a FAS2240 with dedupe enabled...
Basically it is 20TB, and dedupe is enabled... I believe the maximum on a FAS2240 is 40 or 50TB...
Here is the error I get on my dataset... everything else is OK.. so it does do the snapvault updates etc...
=== SEVERITY ===
Error: Conformance checking for volume filer-dk11:/sv_files (3287) failed.
=== ACTION ===
Checking conformance for volume filer-dk11:/sv_files (3287).
=== REASON ===
The requested size 20.0 TB is more than the maximum size allowed for a
deduplication volume. The maximum size on model FAS2240-4 and ONTAP
version 8.1.1P1 7-Mode is 16.0 TB.
It this a bug ?

What version of OnCommand Unified Manager are you using ?
This is a known issue and doesn't need a fix, rather it can be easily updated using the cli, that is described in the bugs online link below.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm running that latest downloadable version 5.1
I the old days there was an updatable configuration file for DFM with each new ontap release, I guess that's gone now ?
I guess I will just fix it with the commands described in the case you refered to.
