Change the storage efficiency mode on a volume from default to efficient show error

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.11.1
  • Storage efficiency
  • AFF A220


When the volume was moved from A400 to A220 system compression is disabled:

::> volume efficiency show -fields policy,compression,inline-compression ,compression-algorithm -compression-algorithm lzrw1a

vserver volume  policy  compression  inline-compression compression-algorithm
------- ------- ------- ------------ ------------------ ---------------------
svm1    vol1    1am     false        false              lzrw1a

When trying to change the storage efficiency mode it results in an error :
::> sis modify vol1 -compression true

Error: command failed: Failed to modify efficiency configuration for volume "vol1" of Vserver
"svm1": LZRW1A compression is not supported on current platform.
