Pool capacity – full

All of the pool's capacity (free and preservation) has been used. This problem typically occurs when the pool's free capacity has been temporarily reduced by drive failures.

Important: Because the pool does not contain any free capacity no new volumes can be created, existing volumes cannot be expanded, and any drives that fail cannot be reconstructed.
Risk of data loss

As the pool is currently unable to reconstruct failed drives, data loss may occur if another drive fails.

Recovery Steps

  1. Are any Drive in Pool Failed problems being reported in the Problems area for drives that are members of the pool shown in the Details area?

    • If yes, go to step 2.

    • If no, go to step 3.

  2. It is recommended to replace the failed drives using the recovery steps in the Drive in Pool Failed procedure listed in the Problems area. If you want to fix the problem without replacing the failed drives, go to step 3.

  3. The problem can be resolved by adding unassigned drives to the pool and/or deleting one or more of the pool's volumes.

    • If you want to add unassigned drives to the pool, go to step 4.

    • If you want to delete volumes on the pool, go to step 5.

  4. Add one or more unassigned drives to the pool, and go to step 6.

    1. Go to Storage > Pools & Volume Groups.

    2. Highlight the pool identified in the Details area.

    3. Select Add Capacity and add one or more drives to the pool.

    4. Go to step 6.

  5. Delete one or more volumes from the pool.

    1. Go to Storage > Volumes.

    2. Highlight the volume you want to delete from this pool.

    3. Select Delete under Uncommon Tasks.

    4. Repeat for each volume you want to delete.

  6. Select Recheck to ensure the problem has been resolved.
