Resizing volumes

Contributors netapp-ivanad

When a volume reaches nearly full capacity, you can increase the size of the volume, delete some Snapshot copies, or adjust the Snapshot reserve. You can use the Volume Resize wizard in System Manager to provide more free space.

About this task
  • For a volume that is configured to grow automatically, you can modify the limit to which the volume can grow automatically based on the increased size of the volume.

  • You cannot resize a data protection volume if its mirror relationship is broken or if a reverse resynchronization operation has been performed on the volume.

    Instead, you must use the command-line interface (CLI).

Steps
  1. Click Storage > Volumes.

  2. From the drop-down menu in the SVM field, select All SVMs.

  3. Select the volume that you want to resize.

  4. Click More Actions > Resize.

  5. Type or select information as prompted by the wizard.

  6. Confirm the details, and then click Finish to complete the wizard.

  7. Verify the changes that you made to the available space and the total space of the volume in the Volumes window.
