System Manager show that the LUN size is full.

Hi

I have a LUN that System Manger 2.0 show as 100.39% used. But when I look into the Disk Manager on the server I have 17.6GB free of 50GB how is that possible?

Re: System Manager show that the LUN size is full.

You probably mean “volume”. System Manager has no way to know how full LUN is.

Showing output of “df -k” and “df -r” would be helpful.

Hi

No, I ment the LUN. It look like this, i ám a bit confused???

Re: System Manager show that the LUN size is full.

OK, it probably displays what is known as “Occupied size” in CLI.

Once host writes block on LUN, block is allocated on NetApp and remains allocated for this LUN. If host now marks block as “free” block remains allocated for LUN from NetApp point of view. There is limited support for “space reclamation”, where host can tell NetApp to free unused blocks. On Windows you need SnapDrive to do it.

Re: System Manager show that the LUN size is full.

Is there any command so I can se the real size in the CLI?

Re: System Manager show that the LUN size is full.

lun show -v and look for “Occupied size”. If it is no there, you have too old Data ONTAP version.
