Enabling storage efficiency on a SnapVault secondary volume

If the primary volume does not have storage efficiency enabled, you can enable storage efficiency on a SnapVault secondary volume by enabling storage efficiency on the volume.

Before you begin

You must have cluster administrator privileges to perform this task for a cluster. You must have Vserver administrator privileges to perform this task for an SVM.

About this task

For information about increasing storage efficiency using deduplication and compression, see the Clustered Data ONTAP Logical Storage Management Guide.

Steps

  1. Use the volume efficiency command with the -on parameter to enable storage efficiency.
  2. If the volume already has data which you want to make storage efficient, use the volume efficiency command with the -start and -scan-old-data parameters to start a scan of the volume.
