issue got fixed editing given parameter

ncli cluster edit-params enable-on-disk-dedup=true

so run this command on any CVM and you should be able to enable dedupe on capacity tier

Hi,

I got the same issue but only for certain storage containers. On 2 containers I can enable inline and post dedub but on other containers I can only enable inline but not post.

Any idea why that is?

Regards

Christian
