Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • NDMP backup
  • backup log

Answer

  • During review of a NDMP backup log, a message estimating the storage requirements for restore is found
  • The message mentions space requirements, inode requirements, and to ensure there is sufficient space
  • Example log message:
To restore this filesystem, a total of nnnnnn KB space and nnnnnn number of free inodes is required.For a data copy operation, ensure that the destination has sufficient space to perform the restore.
  • The message is not an error, and can be seen in the backup log for any job reaching this point in the backup process
  • The message is not indicating there is insufficient space to perform the current backup
  • Note that the message begins with "To restore this filesystem"
  • This is an informational message to help provide guidance for future, potential restores
  • The purpose of the message is to help ensure a future restore destination has enough space
Ignore this message unless:
  • Troubleshooting a restore failure that seems to be space-related
  • Examining a past backup log to determine how much space a restore may require
