Add SnapMirror labels to snapshots

Contributors netapp-pcarriga netapp-dbagwell

SnapMirror labels specify the snapshot retention policy on the SnapMirror endpoint. You can add labels to snapshots and group snapshots.

You can view available labels from an existing SnapMirror relationship dialog box or the NetApp ONTAP System Manager.

Important When you add a label to a group snapshot, any existing labels to individual snapshots are overwritten.
What you'll need
  • SnapMirror is enabled on the cluster.

  • The label you want to add already exists in ONTAP.

  1. Click Data Protection > Snapshots or Group Snapshots page.

  2. Click the Actions icon for the snapshot or group snapshot you want to add a SnapMirror label to.

  3. In the Edit Snapshot dialog box, enter text in the SnapMirror Label field. The label must match a rule label in the policy applied to the SnapMirror relationship.

  4. Click Save Changes.
