    I am running filespace delete on a ISP server (version 6.3.5.1 on Redhat 5.4) that is earmarked for decommissioning.

    I have never seen this before and wondering if anyone has an explanation. Why a negative number of filespace being deleted?

    I've never seen that. Is it on a deduplicated storage pool by any chance? Not that it would make it normal.

    I didn't find any APARs or technotes similar to that either. I would have suggested to check the occupancy, but it's going to be a moot point once the filespace is deleted.

    Filespace is stored on Data Domain and the deduplication is native Data Domain and not TSM.

    The other odd thing is that the count is approaching zero - started at -1,923,590,856 when I first posted and now at -1,763,388,360. Yesterday, the number was positive, and increasing in value.

    Really weird.

    Does the q occ look weird as well for that node? You could use repair occupancy, but I think you'd need to cancel the delete filespace process.
