We use FC block storage for connections from the SQL server to the Netapp SAN. I am in the testing phase of Snapmanager for SQL. Since I use block storage, I have a LUN inside a volume and the lun is setup via snapdrive. When we used Snapmanager to clone a database, we saw a new LUN clone created on the Netapp. The volume available space was cut in half as a result.
My question is that if you use block storage and not NFS/SMB, does a database clone create a lun clone and not a flexclone off the volume? This is concerning for us since if this is true, then you could fill up your volume space if we create clones via Snapmanager for SQL.
