FlexVol 20mb minimum

Why? I can't understand why I can't create a 10mb flexvol


Re: FlexVol 20mb minimum

You should be able to. What error are you getting?


Are you using CLI or System Manager?

Re: FlexVol 20mb minimum

In both cli and system manager. I'm using fas8080

I can't create 10mb volume. Why? Ill be happy if someone will explain me the real reason

Re: FlexVol 20mb minimum

Ok I haven't tried since 7-mode. There must be some kind of limitation with CDOT.


20 MB it is. Sorry. Not sure why but it must be the smallest allowed for metadata structures if I had to take a guess to allow for maxiumum volume sizes per platform.
