New to this forum and to Netapp. I was tasked to repurpose a FAS2220 for our school district. Our FAS2220 is running OnTap 8.1 and was originally connected to a VMWare server stack.
I have to repurpose this array to be backup but I have little experience with NetApp's and I am trying to zero it out so I can move from NFS to CIFS. Vol0 was the only vol and aggr created - and It is at 95% full. I tried vol size vol0 162g (the minimum amount allowed by OnTap) but the Netapp reports the volume size is too small to hold the current volume data. I don't care about the data in vol0 so how do I get rid of it?
I need to create a LUN but the aggr0 shows as only having 600+g free. How do I clear/format/erase the used space on this array? I can't find a path to success.
If you really want to squeeze the best out of the FAS2220 in terms of storage efficiency, consider leaving 7-Mode behind and going to ONTAP 9.1P19 (ONTAP 9.1 is the terminal ONTAP release for FAS22xx).
You can follow this KB for instructions (it's a bit complicated):
