One of my customer called me the other day because he was having problems with a recently created FlexGroup on his A250 (12 x 3.8TB drives, OnTap 9.9.1P3). The customer tried to do a first pass copy of data (CIFS) in preparation of a migration. During the copy operation, the unit complained about a flex group volume being full. Upon examination with us, we found that 3 out of 6 volume constituant (all residing on one aggregate, node1) were full. Why are the other 3 constituant still empty? Thanks for your insights!
Since it was a brand new unit, yes, space on aggr was ok. I think not all constituant were created at the same time as the customer realize that initially, constituant were on one aggr only (node1)... then I came in and told him that node2 has space and could be added so the load is distributed. not sure how the other constituant were created on node2.
