When using the CLI to turn on Deduplication for a volume that already has data in it we would run the command "sis start -s volume_name".
From the Deduplication manual for sis start -s:
Begins the deduplication process on the flexible volume specified and performs a scan of the flexible volume to process existing data. This option is typically used upon initial configuration and deduplication on an existing flexible volume that contains undeduplicated data. (There’s no need to use this option on a volume that has just been created and doesn’t contain any data.).
It makes sense it wouldn't need to be run when starting out with Deduplicaiton turned on for a new volume. However, you can use System Manager to turn on Deduplication later as well. I'm wondering if there is a check which ensures sis start -s runs when there is data in the volume?
