Hi,

I wanted to resize svm1_root volume for svm1 vserver on Simulator ONTAP 9.10.1

Current size is only 20 MB.

What I have to do, please ?

Simply resize it via GUI or CLI

 

Example CLI: re-sizing to 1g from 20M.

::> volume size -vserver SVM -volume <svm_root_vol> -new-size 1g 

 

On the side note:
SVM root volume is not going to be an issue even if it is 20MB only, most of the space it consumes is 'namespace' only. You may have to worry about "node's root volume"


Multiple issues can produce a node's root volume running out of space.
