Missing Space in Qtree

Greetings all,

 

This one is a head scratcher.  I have a volume which is at 77% capacity, and a qtree within the volume that is at 8% usage, but, the user is unable to move data, only 10GB, to the qtree, which comes back out of space. 

 

Just to test, I have increased both the volume and qtree, and the same error shows.  Does anyone know why the available space in the qtree is not allowing the user to access it and utilize it?

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Re: Missing Space in Qtree

do you maybe have per-user quota set? is it only for him on the same volume? can he write on other volumes ?

I wish that NetApp had a per-user quota setting.  It would make my life so much easier.

Re: Missing Space in Qtree

NetApp have per-user and per-group quota on both 7 mode and cdot. it's working not so nicely as it's file owner based and not whole folder based -  but exists....   you can try disableing quota on give volumes and see if he still hit the problem... it might not even be a quota.

it cal also be an old entry that exists only in memory and not the file(7mode)/db(cdot) so  you can't see it. disabling-enabling the quota on the volume will solve this.
