Dear House,

I am new to 3PAR management...and I had storage administration to my job role after the storage administrator quit his job
Recently we ran out of space due to poor management and out of 4 CPGs 3 of them have failed and I need to find a fix ASAP because its already affecting some production VMs.
Can I be pointed to a guide on how to fix this; Kindly note that;
1. Its 7200 Model
2. Cant access CLi...and issue for another day
3. There is a plan to buy more storage
4. Employer is having issues with support

After analysis, I found a TPVV housing just AD Event logs of 200GB which are backed up on a weekly period, I have redirected the logs to a different location and so I plan to delete all the logs then delete the TPVV. With this, I believe the CPG will have an excess of 200GB and I can then Fix the CPG changing it from the failed state and letting the VMs work properly.

I know this is a lot to ask but am willing to learn.
Thank you.

You may have sorted this issue out already but once you remove the unneeded VV if the CPG still shows in error you <should> be able to do a compact on the cpg via the IMC. Large VV deletes can also take a bit as the system has to re-zero them to reclaim the capacity.

Did you sort out the cli issue? there are a few possible causes most of which can be sorted via a search on this forum
