Extending CIFS Share

ALESSANDRO2225

Hi all,

 

i am quite new to NetApp environment, so sorry about the silly question.

I have a NetApp On Command System Manager 2.0 with a CIFS Volume of 2.5 TB.

This Volume has, now only 320 GB of available space left.

The autogrow Maximum size is setted to 3.0 TB with Autogrow Incremental size setted to 30 GB.

 

My questions are:

 

- As I have an Autogrow setted to 3.0 TB may i rely on 320 GB + 500 GB = 820 Gb of space left?

 

- How do i resize the CIFS Volume? Does the process destroy data currently on the CIFS share or can it be done anywhere without problems?

  There is a procedure available somewhere?

 

Thanks in advance to all

No. Volume cannot grow beyond free space available in contraining aggregate.

It can be resized without problem. "vol size vol-name +500g".

Hi,

 

thanks for your response.

 

As far as i see on the On Command System Manager, the aggregate containing the volume has 3,53 TB space left.

Total Space is 10,44 TB. Used Space is 6,91 TB.

May i extend the CIFS Volume using space from 3,53 TB of space left?

 

Therwe is a graphical tool to extend it instead of using command line?

 

Another point: i have just seen that my CIFS volume is replicated via SnapMirror to another Site (Site B).

May i extend the size of CIFS volume on Site A or this will cause problems on replica on Site B?

 

Thank you
