Jump to solution

Hello,

i'm using the newest VPD appliance with 2 TB storage.

Is it possible to resize (minimize) the storage?

Thanks

Dennis

Unless I'm missing something, you can only increase (expand) the size of your VDP, but you cannot decrease (or minimize) the size of your VDP, you will need to re-deploy. One workaround, depending of your current configuration and needs is just convert the VDP disks from thick to thin, but like I said, this is only a workaround and there is no guarantee to release space on datastore and even if that process release some space, it can grow in the future.
