Recently upgrade a FAS6210 array to ONTAP 8.1 GA. Client has several volumes 16TB +, so this was a big need for them.
Aggregates are 64-bit so dedupe limitation for this platform is 70 TB (max volume size).
When I go to enable deduplication on any of these volumes (and even some that are much smaller), I receive the message "Operation Not Configured." This error occurs in both System Manager and the CLI.
I know that deduplication is no longer a "licensed feature" and is built into the ONTAP core, but is there an option someplace that I'm missing?
I have a case open that's awaiting escalation but reaching out everyone here as well
Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, I get the same error as I've been getting all along...
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell> get-NaVol vol_atldata02_litigation_rep | enable-NaSIS | Set-NaSIS -schedule auto | Start-NaSIS

Problem solved... a failover for the controller helped to restore the a-sis feature. Yes, Iwas lucky, since I have an HA configuration that allowed me to failover to the second node.
Anyway, NetApp is aware of this issue: http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=625801
