Brief description of the problem

I want to decrease in size or delete the “home” share on the original rockstor_rockstor pool. The Operating System portion of the Pool is consistently at 100%

Detailed step by step instructions to reproduce the problem

From the “Shares” screen, I find the “homes” share that is on “rockstor_rockstor”, I click “Resize” and choose 1 GB (or any value smaller than the current size) and clicked “Save”

@MRC-MBU Hello again.

Yes, we restrict such operations on the rockstor_rockstor pool as it’s the system pool so changes to this pools layout could result in a non bootable system.

You can however remove / move the data in that subvolume and after a balance, if there is enough space, you should free up what was previously taken up by that data. Also note that you will need to remove all snapshots of the associated data or there will be no space reclaimed.

Hope that helps.
