False positive in log: vsdr.rootvol.has.data


Hi , has anyone seen this before? 

the error vsdr.rootvol.has.data is generated every few minutes for some svm's: Vserver svm01 has data in the root volume. Vserver DR does not protect data in the root volume. I checked the root vol of those svm's via cifs, and there is nothing in there besides shares. There are a lot of shares though, about 1800. Perhaps the pointer files themselves take up too much space? Does anyone know how the system detects that there is data on the root volume?

Here is the space used by a root volume:

volume show-space -vserver svm01 -volume svm01_root

Vserver: uzsvm01
Volume Name: svm01_root
Volume MSID: 2148629449

There is a BUG for this as listed below;




These messages can safely be ignored if there is not any user data in the root volume.
