Too many Snapshot copies after attach or mount operations


If you perform an attach or mount operation on a SnapVault destination volume that is protected by SnapVault schedules and is running ONTAP 8.2.4, you may see an extra Snapshot copy listed in the attach or mount dialog screen. This occurs because the attach or mount operation clones the SnapVault destination volume and ONTAP updates the volume by creating a new Snapshot copy.

Corrective action

Turn off the ONTAP schedule for the SnapVault volume to prevent new Shapshot copies from being created when you clone the volume. Previously existing Snapshot copies are not deleted.
