Re: minimum spcace needed to create a snapshot

the volume you are trying to snap is full or thin provisioned?

What is the network RAID level?

The first snap is going to be the size of the orgnial volume and will be thin provisioned.

if want attach the mgrclientbinmon.log and Ill have a look at it to see what is going on.

Just click on the node, run diags then goto the logs and save that log and attach here.

Thank you, the Network Raid Level is 1 and the Volume is full provisoned (92 % reserved), but When I change it to thin I created successfully the snapshot . can you explain please

Re: minimum spcace needed to create a snapshot

I need to see the mgrclientbinmon.log but probably its because you are using less space then you think.

you can look at that log yourself and search for the volume name..
