Updating a volume's storage capacity - FSx for ONTAP
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Updating a volume's storage capacity

You can manage volume storage capacity by manually increasing or decreasing volume size using the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon CLI and API, and the ONTAP CLI. You can also enable volume autosizing so that the volume size automatically grows or shrinks when it reaches certain used storage capacity thresholds. You use the ONTAP CLI to manage volume autosizing.

To change a volume's storage capacity (console)
  • You can increase or decrease a volume's storage capacity using the Amazon FSx console, Amazon CLI, and API. For more information, see Updating a volume.

You can also use the ONTAP CLI to modify a volume's storage capacity using the volume modify command.

To modify a volume's size (ONTAP CLI)
  1. To access the NetApp ONTAP CLI, establish an SSH session on the management port of the Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP file system by running the following command. Replace management_endpoint_ip with the IP address of the file system's management port.

    [~]$ ssh fsxadmin@management_endpoint_ip

    For more information, see Managing file systems with the ONTAP CLI.

  2. Use the volume modify ONTAP CLI command to modify a volume's storage capacity. Run the following command, using your data in place of the following values:

    • Replace svm_name with the name of the storage virtual machine (SVM) that the volume is created on.

    • Replace vol_name with name of the volume that you want to re-size.

    • Replace vol_size with the new size of the volume in the format integer[KB|MB|GB|TB|PB]; for example, 100GB to increase the volume size to 100 gigabytes.

    ::> volume modify -vserver svm_name -volume vol_name -size vol_size
