I've recently added an AFF HA-Pair to our cluster (we now have 4 nodes, two FAS8060s and two AFF8080s). Documentation indicates that the default is for volumes to be thin provisioned and inline compression/deduplication. I've just moved my first two volumes to the AFF, and neither were thin provisioned or configured with inline deduplication/compression. Any suggestions here? Am I missing a detail?
Also: I also don't show that these options are checked when I create a new volume in System Manager on one of the AFF aggregates. AFTER creation, inline compression and deduplicatoin are enabled, but not thin provisioning.
Lastly: does anyone know if the limitations of eight deduplication jobs at a time apply on AFF systems? I assume that only would apply if scheduled deduplication was added to the default inline deduplication.
I am on OnTAP 8.3.2. Thanks in advance!
