junction path name for an existing volume

sbmmiller

No matter what name I use, I cannot create a new volume. This is the error I get: The volume name that you entered is the junction path name for an existing volume. Enter a different name. Any idea what's going on and how to fix this? I can put ABC123 doesn't matter what name I use.

Try creating the volume on the CLI.

Check if aggr1_node1 is full. If yes, free some data on the aggr. 

Check if SVM root is full. Check if export policy of SVM root volume is RW. Changed the export policy of SVM root volume from RW to none.
