MSA Storage P2000G3 FC/iSCSI Snap Pool running out of space (no snapshots)

We're using a AW568A P2000 G3 which has one snap pool with three manually assigned master volumes. While there are no snapshots on this snap pool, it's still running out of space.

 

Snap pool

 

The show snapshots CLI command also doesn't show any snapshots on this storage.

 

What is taking up all that space (413,8GB) and how can I reclaim it (short of deleting and recreating it)?

Re: MSA Storage P2000G3 FC/iSCSI Snap Pool running out of space (no snapshots)

Did anyone find a solution to this?

 

While one large volume seems to have a lot of lost space in the snap pool I'd like to reclaim, there are other volumes I don't want snaps on anymore. I've deleted the snap pools & the volume size is still listed as say 50G but the host don't see anymore space available, how can I reclaim that?

 

I even tried expanding the volume hoping it would force something but it only showed the added space to the host not the snap pool size + added space.
