Netapp: Create a Flexible Volume Using the Command Line

I decided it was time to switch from creating volumes using the GUI interface and start using the command line interface.

Creating a flexible volume on a Netapp filer running DataOntap is very easy to do.  When you use the command line instead of the GUI it makes it even easier.

The below example shows how to create the volume named “restores”. The volume will be contained in aggregate 1 and the size will be set to 200GB.

vol  create  restores  aggr1  200g

That’s it.
