I am trying to resize the volume (ESXi datastore) on the new Netapp cluster but when I try to increase the capacity of the volume and save it says "updated successfully" but in the end the capacity of the volume is not getting updated. can you please suggest
I have also tried to resize the volume on command line but its not working.
I look forward to your reply
I am using NFS. I tried to do it on the Netapp Cluster GUI. we are using Series ALL FLASH model A series i.e AFF. I don't know why resizing volume or increasing capacity does not work
I just checked the style of the volume and it showed me volume style as "flex" also When i tried via command line
Netapp::> vol size -vserver vservername -volume volname +100g
Error: command failed: This operation is not supported for the system volume
Any errors either in ONTAP or VMware?
Typically with NFS though, you just grow the volume out and it'll eventually see the added space, no need to grow it like a lun.
It seems like the added space doesnot reflect correctly, First I have increased 100gb then with "vol show volname" command i was able to see the increase in size.
Again i have increased 100gb but it seems it didnot increase 😞
not sure whats wrong ?
you may expand the datastore in VMWare:
Also, for future reference there is an easier method using the VSC plugin:
