Subject Volume snapshot and primary storage space
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2017 14:04:15 GMT
Hi team


I have a doubt, why ACS allocate primary storage for latest snapshot VDI of
a volume?

The snapshot was transferred to secondary storage but continued on primary.
This is a problem because it uses space of SR (XenServer).


Physical space of snapshot is not a problem, the VDI have 211K on primary
storage, but virtual space have original size of volume.

It's a waste of space, especially when storage is space-licensed


A friend answered me: the last snapshot is required to take any future
snapshots, that is the reason it stays on primary store


How community see that?
