Reclaim free space on 3par

Hi Experts,

I need your suggestions, how i can reclaim free space on CPG's [FC,SSD] .

3par storage 8440, vcenter 5.5, 6.0

Do we have a new document related reclaim free space? i've read many posts on this community but most of them are old as technology changed [by version :P] are we still using sdelete on windows and UNMAP on vmware -in order to reclaim free space.

Please share your thoughts.

many thanks

Re: Reclaim free space on 3par

Have a look at these documents, they give you detailed information on reclaiming space for VMware (look for keyword "unmap")

For physical Windows 2008 hosts, you can give this a try:

and if you move to 6.5 in the future, the unmap can be automatic!

Re: Reclaim free space on 3par

and on a separate topic, if your 3PAR is calling home (and under support) to HPE, you can also use https://www.storefrontremote.com to get analytics of your 3PAR, along with some recommendations and alerts (if any).
