How do you create flexvols in C-mode?


I've been trying to add flexvols to my simulator, but when I run the command vol create flexvol1 aggr1 1g -vserver sim-cluster-01 I get the message Error: This operation is not supported on 7-mode volume 'flexvol1'. Is there a different way you're supposed to do it on c-mode?


Actually, it looks more like an bug, because I can't even do any operations on my existing volumes (which are flex volumes) without getting that error message




the syntax in Clustered ONTAP is quite different from the one you used in 7-mode. you can just start typing

'vol create <tab> and you'll fill up the command line as required.

and example look like this:

vol create -vserver vsISCSI2 -volume lun_vsISCSI2_1_vol -aggregate aggr_iscsi_2 -size 150MB -state online -type RW -policy default -security-style ntfs
