Configuration settings for space-reserved files or LUNs with thick-provisioned volumes

This FlexVol volume and file or LUN configuration combination provides the ability to use storage efficiency technologies and does not require you to actively monitor your free space, because sufficient space is allocated up front.

Volume setting Value
Guarantee Volume
Fractional reserve 100
Snapshot reserve Any
Snapshot autodelete Optional
