Hello, not sure if this is the right place for this post or not
We have a Fiber SAN FAS3240, we are running Vmware 5.5 with Vmware View VDI. I noticed that the Space on the VMware Datastore is about 60% free, however the space on the LUN reportred by Netapp is only 9% free.
The way its setup is 1 Volume at 1 TB, 1 LUN at 1 TB, and the Vmware Datastore is 1 TB.
Ive been reading other posts and cant figure out if I should be worried or not. Should I only go by what Vmware says is free and I have 60% free. Meaning the space on the LUN from Netapp isnt showing actual free space due to Zeroed out Blocks or something like that.
Or is there really only 9% free and if I add more VM's i could run out of space?
Ive read some articles about having to reclaim space, if this is needed how would i go about it? We are using Netapp 8.14 7 Mode.
I know this lun has had allot of VM's removed over the last year, so is that space free or not?
Thanks, hopefully that made sense
