Vserver snapshot-set-reserve

I have a problem with Vserver snapshot-set-reserve.

 

Sets the size of the indicated volume's snapshot reserve to the specified percentage. Reserve space can be used only by snapshots and not by the active file system.

 

Input Name

Range

Type

Description

percentage

 

integer

Percentage to set. Range [0-100].

volume

 

string

Name of volume on which to set the snapshot space reserve.

     

 

the percentage range is [0-100] but when I set percentage is integer 0. I get the following:

 

Invalid integer value for percentage: (null)

 

but when I set percentage is inter 1. Snapshot-set-reserve works..

 

Could you please let me know how to set snapshot reserve is 0?

Re: Vserver snapshot-set-reserve

Hi,

 

I tested this and it works, can you post the code you are using which generates the error?

 

 

using System;
using System.Text;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using NetApp.Manage;

namespace NetApp.NMSDK.Example
{
  class ApiClient 
  {
	 static void Main(string[] args)
	 {
		 try
		 {
			NaServer s = new NaServer("<cluster_name>", 1 , 110);
			s.ServerType = NaServer.SERVER_TYPE.FILER;
			s.TransportType = NaServer.TRANSPORT_TYPE.HTTPS;
			s.Port = 443;
			s.Style = NaServer.AUTH_STYLE.LOGIN_PASSWORD;
			s.SetAdminUser("admin", "<password>");
			s.Vserver = "<vserver_name>";


			NaElement api = new NaElement("snapshot-set-reserve");
			api.AddNewChild("percentage","10");
			api.AddNewChild("volume","<volume_name>");

			NaElement xo = s.InvokeElem(api);
			Console.WriteLine(xo.ToPrettyString(""));


		}
		catch (NaAuthException e)
		{
			Console.Error.WriteLine("Authorization Failed: " + e.Message);
		}
		catch (NaApiFailedException e)
		{
			Console.Error.WriteLine("API FAILED: " + e.Message);
		}
		 catch (Exception e)
		{
			Console.Error.WriteLine(e.Message);
		}
	 }
  }
}

Have you tried using the "Set-NcSnapshotReserve" cmdlet? EG:

 

PS C:\> import-module dataontap
PS C:\> get-nccommand -api snapshot-set-reserve

Set-NcSnapshotReserve               snapshot        {vserver}            {snapshot-set-reserve}
