Trident creates a new economy ONTAP volume despite space in existing ones

Last Updated:

Applies to

Trident for Openshift/Kubernetes


When setting up a POD with a new PVC using the ontap-nas-economy or ontap-san-economy backends, Trident creates a new ONTAP Volume despite the existing economy (qtree/LUN) volumes having space for the new volume on the aggregate.
Instead of creating the volume, this can also cause the following error when the SVM's volume limit is reached:
Cannot create volume. Reason: Maximum volume count for Vserver <SVM> reached.  Maximum volume count is <VOL_LIMIT>.
