When a volume’s guarantee is disabled, the volume functions as though it has a guarantee of none. If you have volumes with disabled guarantees, you should address the situation by making more space available to those volumes as soon as possible.
You can view the status of the volume's guarantee first or try to enable the guarantee. If enabling the guarantee fails, Data ONTAP provides the reason (typically insufficient space) and specifies the amount of free space needed in the aggregate. A guarantee type of none is never disabled, because there is no space allocated for this guarantee type.
You can set a volume's guarantee to none. In this case, there is no concept of enabled or disabled, because the guarantee requires no space.
If you want to see both the type of guarantee and also whether it is disabled, you can use the vol options command.
In the command output, look for the guarantee type or whether the guarantee is disabled.
sys1> vol status vol2 Volume State Status Options vol2 online raid_dp, flex guarantee=volume(disabled) 64-bit
The following vol options command displays the type of guarantee and whether it is disabled for a volume called vol2:
sys1> vol options vol2 nosnap=on, nosnapdir=off, minra=off, no_atime_update=off, nvfail=off, ignore_inconsistent=off, snapmirrored=off, create_ucode=off, convert_ucode=off, maxdirsize=41861, schedsnapname=ordinal, fs_size_fixed=off, guarantee=volume(disabled), svo_enable=off, svo_checksum=off, svo_allow_rman=off, svo_reject_errors=off, no_i2p=off, fractional_reserve=100, extent=off, try_first=volume_grow, read_realloc=off, snapshot_clone_dependency=off, dlog_hole_reserve=off, nbu_archival_snap=off
Use the vol options command with the guarantee option set to the existing guarantee type. If you specify a different guarantee than the one currently configured for this volume, Data ONTAP changes the guarantee to the one you specify and enables that guarantee.
sys1::> vol options testvol guarantee volume vol options: Request to enable guarantee for this volume failed because there is not enough space in the aggregate. Create 4.79MB of free space in the aggregate.
