EMC VNX Drawbacks – Mapped pools for File

EMC VNX has a feature to have mapped pools for File which is a nothing but a direct association of Storage pools for Block. But the biggest drawback is that we can’t extend the pool from either volumes or disks. So the option of extend or shrink of pools will be disabled at VNX level.

Workaround: Never create a system default pools for File. Manually create user defined pools for File in VNX
