ZFS Share Decreases To Current Filesystem Size During NDMP Backup Filling It Up

(Doc ID 2137870.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2016

Applies to:

Exalogic Elastic Cloud X3-2 Hardware - Version X3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Experienced a serious problem with the backup of Exalogic.

Take the backup every day at the same time using Veritas Netbackup and NDMP with snapshots.

The problem was with the backup of /exports/romatg/domain (97GB) .

After a while, suddenly reserved all available disk space of zpool (300GB), causing serious unavailability of application.

Stopped the backup and disk space was freed again.
