Unable to increase size!!

I am unable to increase size of a filer. It's throwing an alert

'Volume has the fixed filesystem size option set '..

The volume was most likely a snapmirror target and was broken.  "vol options volname fs_size fixed off" to turn it off... the option will right size a target to match the source and would cause this when left on.

For Cluster Ontap (9.3), the command is 'modify', not 'option'.

 

vol modify -volume /vol/vol_name -filesys-size-fixed false -vserver vserver_name
