Resizing FlexGroup volumes

You can use System Manager to resize a FlexGroup volume by resizing existing resources or by adding new resources.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Click Storage > Volumes.
  2. From the drop-down menu in the SVM field, select All SVMs.
  3. Select the FlexGroup volume that you want to resize, and then click More Actions > Resize.
  4. In the Resize FlexGroup Volume window, specify the size to which you want to resize the FlexGroup volume.

    Note: If you want to expand the FlexGroup volume by adding new resources, click (advanced options).
  5. Specify the percentage of the Snapshot copy reserve.
