Feature Request: Create snapshot on volume size modification

Coming from an Equallogic, one feature that was nice was that on a volume resize, it prompted you to create a snapshot prior to resizing.  This way if something goes wrong, the parachute opens

:-)

Re: Feature Request: Create snapshot on volume size modification

Hi

Nimble Storage does this for you automatically, and has done since inception. Any change you make to a volume automatically creates a "NSS" snapshot which isn't cleared down as part of a retention policy. You'll see this in the snapshots tab.

You'll need to clear these down manually should you not wish to keep them.

Thanks,

 

I was trying to figure out a couple weeks ago how those got there.  I thought it was from the Vmware Volume Plugin.

Nimble Rocks!
