Parameters

Parameter Description
snapVolume The name of the snapshot volume for which you want to resume operations. Enclose the snapshot volume name in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets ([ ]).
snapImage

The name of the snapshot image for which you want to resume snapshot volume operations. The name of a snapshot image is comprised of two parts:

  • The name of the snapshot group
  • An identifier for the snapshot image in the snapshot group

The identifier for the snapshot image can be one of these:

  • An integer value that is the sequence number of the snapshot in the snapshot group.
  • NEWEST - Use this option when you want to show the latest snapshot image created in the snapshot group.
  • OLDEST - Use this option when you want to show the earliest snapshot image created in the snapshot group.

Enclose the snapshot image name in double quotation marks (" ").

Notes

The name of a snapshot image has two parts separated by a colon (:):

For example, if you want to resume snapshot volume operations for snapshot image 12345 in a snapshot group that has the name snapGroup1, you would use this command:

resume snapVolume ["snapVol1"] snapImage="snapGroup1:12345";

To resume snapshot volume operations for the most recent snapshot image in a snapshot group that has the name snapGroup1, you would use this command:

resume snapVolume ["snapVol1"] snapImage="snapGroup1:newest";
