  • ONTAP 9
  • Metadata Volume (MDV)

Answer

Removing MDV staging volumes does not mean that audit logs will be deleted. ONTAP will only delete the metadata inside those volumes.
There is a consolidation task that runs and makes sure that all current audit files are processed and moved to the destination before the metadata volume is deleted.
