I'm working with a customer to implement some reporting and monitoring processes around OCI. We're currently using version 6.4.0.
In the course of a normal reclaim of a NAS FlexVol, the customer takes the FlexVol offline and two weeks later, returns to destroy the FlexVol. This allows time to recover in the event that the storage user realizes that they need some data from the volume.
It appears that OCI does not show offline flexvols at all. They do not appear in the Inventory-->Storage, Internal Volumes micro-view. However, the space used by an offline FlexVol does seem to contribute to the Used Capacity number for the corresponding storage pool.
We would like to see offline volumes, because they represent a potential source of orphan storage. It would also be helpful to see the associated capacity when answering "where did all my storage go" type questions.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Any workarounds?
Thank you in advance.
