How to create a volume on NetApp

From the Volumes list, click on the Create button.

The “Create Volume” dialog box will pop up, as shown below.

The name cannot include space or other special characters, except underscore.

You much choose the protocol type at this level. So this requires some planning.

Normally, I’d dedicate 20% of space for snapshot. I like this feature that the usable disk space is automatically reduced, as that means I don’t have to worry about the snapshot taking up space beyond the allocated volume.



The “Storage Efficiency” tab lets you do the dedupe and compression. Since my case is a demo lab, so I’ve turned on all features. Yes, the lab is live, but then that’s how we learn right J
