pool & volume allocation question

We have Netware 6.5 SP8. Just for discussion, let's say I have:

The server has 0 unallocated space. The DATA1 pool is 1T which is divided into two volumes of 500G each. If I delete one of the volumes, that should give the pool 500G of unused space. How can I use that 500G of free space in DATA1 in another pool, in the DATA2 pool?

Thanks....

When you delete a volume inside a pool you will create more available
space in that specific pool.
I'm afraid it won't allow you to use that space to expand another pool.
In order to expand another pool you will need free partition space.

Re: pool & volume allocation question

Hi,

As stated... natively, when you delete a volume from an NSS pool it simply frees up pool space for another volume to be created.

You might find that Portlock Storage Manager can do something for you: http://www.portlock.com/products/storagemanager/

Perhaps contact Portlock directly to see if their software can do this for you.

Let us know how it goes.
