hello guys ,
on Flex there is a path "/mnt/msdp/vol0"
when i expand MSDP storage on Flex i give the last 4TB on that MSDP , but the extra space is not on that vol0 but on vol1
is that normal? because now i dont have enough space for my backups , looks like i cant use that extra 4TB from vol1
thanks in advanced
What you are seeing is normal behaviour - there is some intelligence in how storage is allocate when you expand MSDP etc.
The second volume (vol1) should be part of the MSDP - have you checked in the UI to verify that the total size of the pool in is showing as the additional 4 TB. NetBackup (or more precisely the storage server on the Flex instance) will manage allocating data between the various volumes that make up the pool.
on total yes its okay
the problem here is that im running out of space (until i get a new shelf) so i give that extra space
but it looks like backups cant use that extra space
running the crcontrol --dsstat the available space is still the same was before i do the changes
That would be the command if you were adding a new mount point to a BYO MDSP.
You should be able to check if the partition is in use using the "crcontrol --dsstat 2" option - this should show all mount points. If the new 4 TB partition doesn't appear, I'd go with @StefanosM and log a support case as it may not be as simple as simply adding the new mount point due to the nature of the instance (persistant data and non-persistant data).
hi @davidmoline and @StefanosM , we open a case and the problem resolve
here is what we did through engineer instructions
at first we run this command to see the mount points
#sudo /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin/crcontrol --dsstat 2 | grep -A1 "= Mount point"
as was only 1 mount point we run the next commands to fix the issue
Here are the exact commands to run once in the Flex Appliance Clish.
