Plex /cifs/plex0: online, normal, active RAID group /cifs/plex0/rg0: normal RAID group /cifs/plex0/rg1: normal
I know that this aggregate is using raid_dp and has 16 disks.
if I do df -Ah cifs:
Aggregate total used avail capacity cifs 4087GB 3125GB 962GB 76% cifs/.snapshot 215GB 61GB 153GB 29%
I see that its also taking up some space by doing aggr snapshots, which I will disable the schedule and purge those snapshots later on.
So I have about 4293GB if I take back the snapshot space.
We dont have an NFS license, we have a VMFS, so the new volumes on that aggregate will be vmfs. Is there a good way to split up that 4293GB of disk space into 2 or 4 volumes, which then on will contain a lun presented to esx?

I am not sure I really understand a question. You just creates FlexVols on this aggregate (like you already did) and then create LUNs inside these FlexVols. Or could you explain in more details what you intend to do?
