On my FAS3140A (ONTAP 7.3.1P3) one of the volumes used as NFS datastore for VMWare reports the size for every snapshot to be 0%. I get the same information when viewing it through FilerView or System Manager. However, it is possible to get the capacity used by a snapshot with "snap reclaimable" command.
Other volumes that are used in the same way (exported through NFS) everything is ok. All the snapshots are created from VSC i.e. SMVI.
Any idea what could be wrong? Is there a way to fix this?
Did anyone figure out a resolution to this? It's just starting happening with a customer I'm working with. The Netapp is a FAS2050 running OnTAP 188.8.131.52 - the volume in question is being mirrored to a FAS2020 (also 184.108.40.206) - the snapshots show as 0kb there too. Something about the calculation is being stored, and transferred accross.
you should open a case with NetApp for this. But I can tell you what they'll say: it's only a display bug, it's cosmetic, and everything is calculated correctly "under the hood".. We opened about 3 or 4 cases with this problem for different customer systems, and they were all closed with that argument.
