i am trying to create an infinite volume but i can't find the option in the OnCommand system manager nor the command line, i have a 2 node cluster and few aggregates on both, please check the pictures for more details...
Looking at the pictures (aggr size) , I think you are on Ontap Simulator, it's not possible to create one.
B'cos: The aggregates that are used by an Infinite Volume should be larger than 100 TB with a minimum of 1.1 TB of available space. Infinite Volume is a scalable data container with a single namespace and a single junction path. Therefore, it must be setup with multiple-node and aggreagtes.
Therefore, if you need to set this up on a production server, then some planing is required, please refer to the doc below.
1) Aggr: Before you create an Infinite Volume, you must create aggregates on multiple nodes to provide storage for the volume. 2) SVM : Before you can create an Infinite Volume, you must create a specific type of Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) called an SVM with Infinite Volume.
Example, how it appears during creation: cluster::> volume create -vserver vs0 -volume ivol -size 200TB [Job 125] Creating constituent "ivol_ns" on aggregate "aggr2". [Job 125] Creating constituent "ivol_ns_mirror0001" on aggregate "aggr5". [Job 125] Creating constituent "ivol_1024_data0001" on aggregate "aggr3" [Job 125] Creating constituent "ivol_1024_data0002" on aggregate "aggr6"
thanks for your reply but i have a concern, its true that i am using a simulator [9.5] but the course i am following up with to learn the product is also using a simulator and he has the option available and have done the configuration with no issues, please check the attached picture for more details and clarification, i doubt that the issue is more related to the license ? at least i should see the option and not being able to configure it if you are correct, also i have seen the documentation and didn't find the storage requirements you mentioned [larger than 100 TB with a minimum of 1.1 TB of available space] i appreciate if you send me the link for this please...
yes i am aware that it works only for NAS and not SAN protool, no i can't enable it in the simulator and the option doesn't exists in the GUI nor the CLI, good to know that issue is not related to the license but i wonder what could be the problem ?
