I have managed to inherit from a NetApp system and I could do with a few pointers for basic tasks. It looks like we may need to hire a consultant, but I don't see why checking these simple things should be so difficult …
First, the system is running live NFS services for VMWare, but I can't get any information about the NFS configuration. I hope this would give me at least some information on what volumes do what (because even they don't make sense, see below).
It shows 4 vservers, with 2 nodes –
Admin Operational Root Vserver Type Subtype State State Volume Aggregate ----------- ------- ---------- ---------- ----------- ---------- ---------- SAN2 admin - - - - - SAN2-01 node - - - - - SAN2-02 node - - - - - svm_nfs_sm data default running running svm_nfs_ san2_01_ sm_root data
However, trying to list all nfs parameters, with or without a specified vserver, returns nothing
SAN2::> nfs show This table is currently empty. SAN2::> nfs show -vserver svm_nfs_sm There are no entries matching your query.
When it comes to volumes, as briefly mentioned above, even they don't make much sense. I see 3 NFS mounts in VMware, reported as 3 TB, 3 TB and 1 TB, but only 2 volumes of 2.5 TB on NetApp
svm_nfs_sm vmdatastore01_sm san2_01_data online DP 2.50TB 824.8GB 67% svm_nfs_sm vmdatastore02_sm san2_02_data online DP 2.50TB 1.23TB 50%
I could do with basic help to just inventory what does what and where the VMWare data is actually stored …
