Volume NAS or SAN



When I create a volume with the GUI, I have to choose NAS or SAN.

But after creating it I can't see anyware if the volume is SAN or NAS created.


How can I see how the volume was creates ?




Re: Volume NAS or SAN

You can't. This is question about intended usage. Wizard will set some options differently, depending on it; each of these options can be changed independently at any time also after initial volume creation.


This question is there to set some recommended defaults, nothing more.

OK thanks 

Re: Volume NAS or SAN

I do not have exhaustive list. Some that come in mind are snap reserve, fractional reserve, automatic snapshot creation. Possibly space reservation.
