Re-create snapshot volume

You can re-create a snapshot volume or a snapshot consistency group snapshot volume that you previously disabled. Re-creating a snapshot volume takes less time than creating a new one.

Before you begin

About this task

You cannot re-create an individual member snapshot volume; you can re-create only the overall snapshot consistency group snapshot volume.

Note: If the snapshot volume or snapshot consistency group snapshot volume is part of an online copy relationship, you cannot perform the re-create option on the volume.

Procedure

  1. Select Storage > Snapshots.
  2. Select the Snapshot Volumes tab.

    The Snapshot Volumes table appears and displays all the snapshot volumes associated with the storage array.

  3. Select the snapshot volume that you want to re-create, and then select Uncommon Tasks > Recreate.

    The Recreate Snapshot Volume dialog box appears.

  4. Select one of the following options:
    • An existing snapshot image created from volume <name>

      Select this option to indicate an existing snapshot image from which to re-create the snapshot volume.

    • A new (instant) snapshot image of volume <name>

      Select this option to create a new snapshot image from which to re-create the snapshot volume.

  5. Click Recreate.
