I have been following you and - have put to use - many of your scripts and suggestions - so I am hoping you can help me with a bit of learning -
I was tasked with the removal of a 1TB qTree - I come across your script when I needed to learn how to remove existing directories - but then was cautioned about what might happen if I deleted all the data at once(..it rolls into the snapshot area. The aggregate does not have enough space to grow the volume and snapshot area to allow for a massive delete...) I came across this document which seems to reference the issue [TR-3483 "Thin Provisioning in a NetApp SAN or IP SAN Enterprise Environment"
- my question is this - how what is the best way to prevent <autogrow-delete> while doing a fairly routine task of storage administration?
Thanks for you time and keep the great scipts coming!
