Reducing LUN size without coordination with the host system may cause permanent data loss or corruption.. Use the force flag to allow LUN size reduction.

Re: how to use force flag in restApi to reduce lun size?

You do realize all the sequences you'll get after downsizing a LUN, aren't you?

Most applications will not survive such a reduction.

 

A better option is to make LUN thinly provisioned instead.
