You can specify advanced settings that apply when you provision new volumes on the storage system. These settings include features such as enabling thin provisioning and deleting a volume when the last LUN contained in it is deleted.
|Create a new volume for a new LUN||
Selecting this option creates a FlexVol with the same name as the LUN. If a volume with that name already exists, VSC appends a number to the volume name; for example:
|Reserve space for volumes that contain thin provisioned LUNs||Checking this results in having a thin LUN in a thick volume when a thin LUN is chosen.|
|Thin provision volume clones||Sets the space reservation policy to thin provisioning for clones created from this volume.|
|Delete a volume if the last LUN in it has been deleted||Destroys the volume when the last LUN on it is deleted.|
|Buffer space between volume and LUN (GB)||Specifies the amount of additional capacity in a volume that contains a LUN-based datastore.|
