Start snapshot image rollback
start snapImage rollback command starts a rollback operation for a set of snapshot images.
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 role.
The content of the base volume changes immediately to match the point-in-time content of the selected snapshot image volume. The base volume immediately becomes available for read/write requests after the rollback operation has successfully completed. To stop a snapshot image rollback operation, use the
stop rollback snapImage command.
The repository volume that is associated with the snapshot image continues to track any new changes between the base volume and the snapshot image volume that occur after the rollback operation is completed.
You cannot use this command for snapshot images involved in online volume copy.
