Answer

  1. Create a new, smaller aggregate
    • Disable auto capacity management
    • Make sure that the correct tiering policy is assigned:
      • “All” or “Auto” tiering policies should make use of the capacity tier and free up space in the performance tier
      • The default “minimum cooling days” for these policies is high, so you will need to set it to 2 days if you want to see any results sooner

  2. Move the volume

  3. Delete the old aggregate from Cloud Manager which will also delete the disks in the backend

Additional Information

  • It is not possible to shrink an aggregate.
  • Therefore, if the aggregate is too large for your needs and you would like to use a smaller aggregate and reduce cost, this procedure explains how it can be done.
