These volumes are fully allocated volumes (not thin-provisioned)
Now, in few volumes we can see very less utilized capacity and hence want to shrink/reclaim it .
Want to know is it safe to reclaim spaces from Oracle / Sys Admin volumes or is there a slightest of chance for data loss.
I understand this is driven by WAFL and hence intelligent enough to reclaim only the empty/zero blocks from volumes - but still want to know if it is 100% safe.
Please comment and help me with any best practice doc related .
