Why is the LUN in read-only mode when my FSx for ONTAP file system capacity is full?
3 minute read
The Linux client where the logical unit number (LUN) is mounted is in read-only mode. My Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP volume shows “out of space” in the Amazon FSx console.
If your FSx for ONTAP file system is out of space and your volumes are thin provisioned, then the LUN is read only. Volumes that you create from the Amazon FSx console or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) are thin provisioned.
To resolve this issue, increase the space in the file system, volume, and LUN. Then, run an operating system (OS)-level file system check to make sure that the file system is in a healthy state before you use it.
Perform diagnostic checks
If your FSx for ONTAP file system at the client OS is read only, then you might see a log entry similar to the following one:
EXT4-fs (dm-11): Remounting filesystem read-only
EXT4-fs (dm-11): previous I/O error to superblock detected

Also, storage space might be limited on the FSx for ONTAP server. To view disk space usage on the server, run the following command:
::> df -h
::> df -h -A
To view space at the LUN level, run the following command. Replace svm_name and lun_path with your values:
::> lun show
::> lun show -vserver svm_name -path lun_path
To determine if the volume is thin provisioned or thick provisioned, run the following commands. Replace svm_name and vol-name with your values:
::> volume show -fields space-slo
::> volume show -vserver svm_name -volume vol_name -fields space-slo
Add capacity to your disk space
To add capacity to your file system, complete the following steps:
