Hmm...can you elaborate a bit on the situation?

The most obvious thing to me would be a trial SnapMirror license to move some volumes to a different aggregate.

Hi Stefano,

Aggregate overcommitment is also called "thin provisioning" and there are a couple of tech reports about it.

For general information, see TR-3563, "NetApp Thin Provisioning", at  http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3563.pdf.

For SAN environments, see TR-3483, "Thin Provisioning in a NetApp SAN or IP SAN Enterprise Environment", at http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr3483.pdf.
