Identifying how to correct capacity issues

If Cloud Manager cannot provide recommendations for moving a volume to avoid capacity issues, you must identify the volumes that you need to move and whether you should move them to another aggregate on the same system or to another system.


  1. View the advanced information in the Action Required message to identify the aggregate that has reached its capacity limit.
    For example, the advanced information should say something similar to the following: Aggregate aggr1 has reached its capacity limit.
  2. Identify one or more volumes to move out of the aggregate:
    1. In the working environment, click the menu icon, and then click Advanced > Advanced allocation.
    2. Select the aggregate, and then click Info.
    3. Expand the list of volumes.

      Screen shot: Shows the list of volumes in an aggregate in the aggregate information dialog box.

    4. Review the size of each volume and choose one or more volumes to move out of the aggregate.
      You should choose volumes that are large enough to free space in the aggregate so that you avoid additional capacity issues in the future.
  3. If the system has not reached the disk limit, you should move the volumes to an existing aggregate or a new aggregate on the same system.
  4. If the system has reached the disk limit, do any of the following:
    1. Delete any unused volumes.
    2. Rearrange volumes to free space on an aggregate.
    3. Move two or more volumes to another system that has space.
