Reallocate Question


Hi Experts.

I am having a little trouble setting up reallocation for a 3TB LUN running on Clustered ONTAP 8.3.2

I am running the command


reallocate start -o -path /vol/volumename/qtreename/lunname


And I am getting the error

Error: command failed: path should be given in the format "/vol/<volumename>/<file path>".

Can someone please advise the correct syntax 🙂

I have read the man pages and there is a pathname option but I can not find any examples.
