Answer

It is highly recommended NOT to modify the maxdirsize settings due to the potential performance impact !!!

The maxdirsize options can be set back to a lower value.

But it should be not reduced to a value lower than the current largest directory in the volume. Please read Is there a way to determine how big maxdir-size should be? in What is maxdirsize? to get a proper size if maxdirsize has to be reduced. 

 

7-Mode

>vol options <volume> maxdirsize <size>

 

Clustered Data ONTAP

::>set advanced

::*>volume modify -vserver <vserver> -volume <volume> -maxdir-size <size>
