FlexGroup Conversion
 

Issue

Conversion of a FlexVol  to FlexGroup via CLI reports success, however the FlexVol was not actually converted.

Example:

 
FlexVol conversion is started and reports success:
 

 

cluster01::> set -privilege advanced
cluster::*> vol conversion start -volume test -vserver test
Warning: After the volume is converted to a FlexGroup, it will not be possible to change it back to a flexible volume.
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y
[Job 7891] Job succeeded: success
 
Job history confirms the FlexVol conversion was successful:
 

 

cluster01::*> job history show -id 7891
Time Node Owning Vserver Name Event Job ID
-------------- -------------- ---------- -------------------- --------- ------
Date Time node vserver
Volume Convert Succeeded 7891
Description: Converting flexible volume to FlexGroup
Completion: success
 
Volume show still identifies the volume as being a FlexVol (not a FlexGroup):
 

 

cluster::*> volume show -vserver test -volume-style-extended flexgroup
