Revive snapshot volume


The revive snapVolume command forces a specified snapshot volume 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.


The snapshot volume can be one of the following:

  • A standalone snapshot volume

  • A snapshot volume that is a member of a consistency group

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


You cannot use this command for a snapshot volume that is used in online volume copy.
