How space reservation works with FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs

FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs inherit the space reservation attribute from the parent file and parent LUN.

FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs inherit the space reservation settings of the parent file and the parent LUN. Therefore, if there is not enough space in the FlexVol volume to create a FlexClone LUN with the same space reservation as that of the parent, then the cloning operation fails.

Note: The space required according to space reservation attribute is separate for the parent LUN and the FlexClone LUN.
