Revive snapshot group


The revive snapGroup command forces the specified snapshot group to the Optimal state.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin or Support Admin role.


If the snapshot group is not in a Failed state, the firmware displays an error message and does not run this command.
