volume snapshot rename

Rename a snapshot

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


The volume snapshot rename command renames a Snapshot copy.
Note: You cannot rename a Snapshot copy that is created as a reference copy during the execution of the volume move command.


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver
This specifies the Vserver that contains the volume on which the specified Snapshot copy is to be renamed
-volume <volume name> - Volume
This specifies the volume that contains the Snapshot copy to be renamed.
-snapshot <snapshot name> - Snapshot
This specifies the Snapshot copy that is to be renamed.
-new-name <snapshot name> - Snapshot New Name
This specifies the new name for the Snapshot copy.
[-force [true]] - Force Rename (privilege: advanced)
If this parameter is specified, the Snapshot copy rename operation is allowed on application tagged volumes. Otherwise, the operation is disallowed on application tagged volumes.


The following example renames a Snapshot copy named vol3_snap on a volume named vol3 and a Vserver named vs0. The Snapshot copy is renamed to vol3_snap_archive.
cluster1::> volume snapshot rename -vserver vs0 -volume vol3
-snapshot vol3_snap -new-name vol3_snap_archive
