  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • SQL backups create lun type volumes on vsnap and when the
    storage pool is expanded volumes of lun type will not expand
    automatically. Because of that if a SQL job fails because of
    lack of free space on storage pool, the job will continue to
    fail with the same error even if you expand the storage pool.

Problem conclusion

  • The problem is resolved by adding functionality to expand the
    lun used by sql backup after a storage pool is expanded. The lun
    will be expanded to the new size of the pool.
    

Temporary fix

  • Create a SLA for the backups after the pool is expanded. That
    will create a new lun with the expanded size of the pool.
