Requirements for enabling both autoshrink and automatic Snapshot copy deletion

Contributors

The autoshrink functionality can be used with automatic Snapshot copy deletion if certain configuration requirements are met.

If you want to enable both the autoshrink functionality and automatic Snapshot copy deletion, your configuration must meet the following requirements:

  • ONTAP must be configured to attempt to increase volume size before trying to delete Snapshot copies(the -space-mgmt-try-first option must be set to volume_grow).

  • The trigger for automatic Snapshot copy deletion must be volume fullness(the trigger parameter must be set to volume).
