Why did a Quality of Service (QoS) policy get applied to a newly created volume in System Manager?

Last Updated:

Applies to

ONTAP System Manager 9.8


  • When creating volumes in System Manager, an adaptive QoS policy is automatically set by default
  • Example: In newly created test3 volume, the Value-Fixed QoS policy is applied to the volume
