"This command is not supported for FlexGroup volumes or FlexGroup" error returns after running command "volume efficiency undo"

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • FlexGroup
  • Volume efficiency
  • ONTAP 9


  • When specifying the "-volume" option as "fg*", the following error occurs:

cluster::*> volume efficiency undo -vserver svm1 -volume fg*
Error: command failed on vserver "svm1" volume "fg": This command is not supported for FlexGroup volumes or FlexGroup constituents.
0 entries were acted on.

  • But if we change that option as a member volume such as "fg_0001", the following error occurs.

cluster::*> volume efficiency undo -vserver svm1 -volume fg_0001
Error: command failed: Insufficient free space available for the "efficiency undo" operation to complete on volume fg__0001 of Vserver svm1.
At least xxGB is required.
