I deleted an nfs volume but didn't free up space in the aggregate


Hi guys, sorry for my english!

I manage a Netapp storage environment and I came across the following situation: I deleted a 23 TB NFS volume that was not in use, to free up aggregate space, after 24 hours I realized that I had not released aggregate space.
The volume was completely excluded from storage, there was no snapmirror configured.

Excluded volume information:

Vserver Volume Aggregate Status Type Size Available Used%
--------- ------------ ------------ ---------- ---- --- ------- ---------- -----
svm_egm_cae01 TE_CAE_PROG_ENG_CHEFE_SISTEMAS_TEST_CLEAN aggr_sata_n2 online RW 23.28 TB 4.10 TB 78%

Below is some information about aggregate settings:

clus-emb-egm-eng ::> df -h -A
Total aggregate used availability capacity
aggr_root_n1 3179GB 3025GB 154GB 95%
aggr_root_n1 / .snapshot 167GB 0B 167GB 0%
aggr_root_n2 3179GB 3025GB 154GB 95%
aggr_root_n2 / .snapshot 167GB 0B 167GB 0%
aggr_sata_n1 254TB 224TB 30TB 88%
aggr_sata_n1 / .snapshot 0B 0B 0B 0%
aggr_sata_n2 254TB 250TB 4241GB 98%
aggr_sata_n2 / .snapshot 0B 0B 0B 0%

Storage model: FAS8200

23TB of data might take sometime to reflect back. Can you confirm that the volume is no longer available. Also, not sure which version of Ontap you running; but you can check the recovery queue and remove the volume from there as well.


cluster::> vol recovery-queue show

The volume you deleted would show with the same name and add a suffix to it. if it is still showing there, you can proceed and deleted.

cluster::> vol recovery-queue purge -vserver <vserver name> -volume <volume name>
