Disable deduplication on flexible volume 'FASNOD02BK:/DS_FASNOD01PR_HVA_GOLD_1_backup' (63314)

=== REASON ===

Task requires user confirmation.


Start a conformance run manually for this dataset.

Any idea whats going on?



how does your provisioning policy fo dedupe look like? and is it attached to the dataset?

btw: is ist a snapvault/QSM relation ship?


There is no provision policy. Resources are assigned manually using resource pools. Dedup is enabled on volume from Filer console. There is no dedup schedule as its happening on SV destination. Thanks


Hi Muhammad

I think you will have to create a provisioning policy with option deduplication in DFM. And then attach it to the dataset. I don’t think it’s supported to manually enable dedupe on a snapvault destination volume from CLI.
