Use Provisioning  Manager "fully thin" NAS volume

Looking for some assistance in using    a Provisioning Policy  to create "Fully Thin"   CIFS  NAS volumes.

 

Best I seem to be able to do  is  Space reservation  = File,  but then this then turns on Fractional Reserve.

 

These CIFS volumes are not critical  or that important and  I can use  System Manager or command line  to create, but  am trying to do as much as possible in Operations Manager  volumes, so I can hand off to the IT support team

 

Regards,

Richard

    Hi Richard,

         OCUM 5.1 release has an options to disable the file space reservation to none for NAS provisioning policy both at dataset and global level. Here is the link to the same from Release notes of version 5.1

    https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1120082/html/GUID-3E8AB1F0-FF4F-4991-AE37-BEBB704BF614.html

     

    Copy Pasting the same for convenience

    dfpm dataset set

    With the isNoneGuaranteedProvision option, enables thin provisioning in a specified dataset of NAS volumes, with no space guarantee

    With the isSkipAutosizeConformance option, skips the dataset conformance check on the Autosize option in a volume member of a specified dataset, and enables thin provisioning in a specified dataset of NAS volumes when theisNoneGuaranteedProvision option is also enabled

    dfm option set

    With the isNoneGuaranteedProvision option, enables thin provisioning in all datasets of NAS volumes with no space guarantee

    With the isSkipAutosizeConformance option, skips the dataset conformance check on the Autosize option in a volume and enables thin provisioning in all datasets of NAS volumes when the isNoneGuaranteedProvision option is also enabled

    Richard,

     

    if you are starting a new project (e.g. no Provisioning Manager legacy to consider) I would definitely recommend that you look into OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) as an alternative. That's the tool to use for automated provisioning going forward and it gives you full flexibility and control over every setting.

     

    Regards
