Hi,

Can someone please let us know how to enable compression on VMAX3 All Flash Array which is currently

Is there any specific white paper or procedure ?

Re: How to enable compression on VMAX3 All Flash Array

All Flash array is upgraded to HYPERMAX OS 5977 Q3 2016 software, existing storage groups can be enabled for compression and incoming data writes are considered for compression. For existing storage groups, the compression attribute can be enabled or disabled with the symsg set command using the -compression or -nocompression options. An error is returned with the -compression option if the associated SRP does not support compression.
