snaplock event-retention apply

Apply an Event Based Retention policy on all files within a user specified path.

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The snaplock event-retention apply command starts a new operation to apply the specified Event Based Retention (EBR) policy to all files in the specified path. If a file is a regular file, it will be made a WORM file and retained for a retention-period as defined by the specified policy name. If a file is already WORM, its retention time will be extended to a retention-period as defined by the specified policy name, starting from the current time. The retention time of a file will be extended only if the file's current retention time is less than the new retention time value to be set. Only a user with security login role vsadmin-snaplock is allowed to perform this operation.

Specifies the name of the Vserver which has the EBR policy defined to be applied on one or more files.
