Cannot provision FlexCache volume because it is in use by another FlexCache operation

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • FlexCache


New FlexCache volumes cannot be created from an origin due to a failed cleanup with the following error, and the error persists after multiple retries:
cluster1::> volume flexcache create -vserver svm2 -volume cache1 -auto-provision-as flexgroup -origin-volume origin1 -size 200MB -origin-vserver svm1

Error: command failed: Cannot provision FlexCache volume "cache1", because volume "origin1" in Vserver "svm1" is currently in use by another FlexCache operation. Wait a few minutes and try the command again. If the problem persists, contact technical support for assistance.
