Volume and LUN size mismatch

HELP!

I have multiple luns presented to a Windows 2008 R2 standard server via iSCSi. Data has been written and deleted successfully to these luns for months and the problem I have is a major differance in the available space between the OS and the lun / volumes within system manager v2.0.

For Example: Drive on server shows 1Tb free space / luns within system manager shows 1Tb free space / volume in system manager shows 200Gb free space. I need to resize this vol by -500Gb and I can't because it thinks there is only 200Gb free plus I'm cautious that the vol will go offline as the OS thinks it has buckets of space free!

2 snap shots created totalling 100Gb and the fractional reserve is set to 0% and no snap reserve (yet)

I have run a space reclaimer using snap manager but this only balances the sizes between OS and sys manager luns. ON TAP version 8.0.1 P4......any ideas or comments appreciated.

Cheers

Baz

Volume and LUN size mismatch

If you run space reclamation after creating snapshot, all your freed space is locked in snapshot.

show output of "df -h" and "df -rh" for volume in question as well as "lun show /your/lun/on/this/volume"

Volume and LUN size mismatch

Thanks for the response. The total size of the snap shots is 100Gb and I have deleted them so free space is now 300Gb on the volume.

Volume and LUN size mismatch

Thanks Jakob,

The combination of space reclaim within snap drive and reallocate start -f [vol name] seems to have balanced it all out.

Cheers
