Create thin provisioned Cluster Lun

I am trying to create a cluster LUN on a NetApp array for which I use the out-of-box task "CreateClusterLUN" in the NetApp Tasks directory. However, it turns out to create a thick provisioned LUN, which I want to change. It doesn't give me any options on the task input mappings and I was wondering if someone has any ideas for this?

Thanks!

Re: Create thin provisioned Cluster Lun

Hi Lucas,

As of latest UCSD 6.5, it is a limitation on the out of the box Task where it didn't have an option to enable Thin provisioning on a newly created LUN.

However, you can workaround it through an SSH task. I have attached a sample workflow which connects to NetApp controller and enables Thin Provisioning on a newly created LUN.

Tasks Used:

Create Cluster Flexible Volume

Create Cluster LUN

Get SVM Name (Custom Task)

SSH Command (to enable Thin Provisioning)

The attached workflow was created on UCSD 6.0.1.2 (FYI)

Thanks,

Phani

Re: Create thin provisioned Cluster Lun

Thanks Phani, this workflow helped exactly!

I had tried to execute a NetApp CLI command before, which didn't yield the hoped result but now this SSH command did.

Thank you.
