Disabling data compression on a volume

You can disable data compression on a FlexVol volume by using the sis config command.

About this task

If you want to disable postprocess compression, you must first disable inline compression on the volume.

Steps

  1. Stop any volume efficiency operation that is currently active on the volume by entering the following command: sis stop path
    path is the complete path to the FlexVol volume.
  2. Disable data compression by entering the following command: sis config [-C {true|false}] [-I {true|false}] path
    false value for -C disables background compression.
    false value for -I disables in-line compression.
    path is the complete path to the FlexVol volume.

Examples

The following command disables inline compression on the volume VolA: sis config -I false /vol/VolA

The following command disables both postprocess and inline compression on the volume VolA:sis config -C false -I false /vol/VolA
