When I'm trying to create new LUN on empty Storage Pool I get:
"LUN 3 could not be created: There is insufficient free space in the pool to complete the operation. Please add storage to the Pool and retry. (0x712d8709)"
FLARE version is 31, no other problems.Do you have same "feature" on 31 FLARE?
In fact, that is the problem - it appears that there is no enough space in the pool.
But here's why I'm posting it - I'm creating new Storage Pool and trying to create new LUN using MAX User Capacity option (forgot to mentione it in first post ). The Pool is empty so there should be space for MAX size of LUN Smaller LUNs are created without any problems.
I wonder if it is a feature of FLARE 31 or am I alone with this problem.
I cannot create so big LUN but I'm able to create ca. 3,2TB LUN.
I have opened Service Request and even got answer that this is FLARE 31 issue but I would like to confront it with other VNX users as I didn't find any thread about this. Maybe somebody has this FLARE and verify if s/he is able to create LUN using MAX option.
dynamox, thank you for your help
On 3737.285 Storage Pool I had one LUN (1TB, 1024GB). I created new LUN with MAX option and second LUN appeared (2611GB).
So (most probably) error shows up only on empty Storage Pool.
BTW, we have 05.31.000.5.720.
