AX4-5 LUN Shrinking

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have a 5Tb LUN that needs to be shrunk. Am I correct in thinking this can't be done on an AX4-5 without destroying the LUN (therefore requiring recovering from backup or similar) and also destroying all the snapshots defined for the LUN ?

(The flare version is 2.23)

Regards

David

Hi David,

LUN shrink is a FLARE revision dependent feature. It is available on FLARE revision 29 and later for traditional LUNs. Pool LUN shrink is a feature found in FLARE revision 30 and later. LUN shrink is only supported by hosts with the Microsoft Server 2008 Operating system and later.
