FSA NetApps: deletion of archived files

Created: 30 Jul 2012 • Updated: 12 Oct 2012 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


EV does not delete the archived files for NetApp filers if the path to the folder that contains the placeholder exceeds 256 characters. This path length limit is due to a NetApp Data ONTAP 7.3 FPolicy restriction.

Anyone having this problem? What can I do? How can I delete all this archived files that remains there after deleting its placeholders?

I read about this problem in one of the Administratos Guide (Setting up File System Archiving). So I'm afraid this must not be aesy to solve. At least I would like to know if there is a way to delete an archived file when its assiciated placeholders is removed.
