Contributors amgrissino netapp-pcarriga

You can modify existing snapshot schedules. After modification, the next time the schedule runs it uses the updated attributes. Any snapshots created by the original schedule remain on the storage system.

  1. Click Data Protection > Schedules.

  2. Click the Actions icon for the schedule you want to change.

  3. In the resulting menu, click Edit.

  4. In the Volume IDs CSV field, modify the single volume ID or comma-separated list of volume IDs currently included in the snapshot operation.

  5. To pause or resume the schedule, select from the following options:

    • To pause an active schedule, select Yes from the Manually Pause Schedule list.

    • To resume a paused schedule, select No from the Manually Pause Schedule list.

  6. Enter a different name for the schedule in the New Schedule Name field if desired.

  7. To change the schedule to run on different days of the week or month, select Schedule Type and change the schedule from the options provided.

  8. Optional: Select Recurring Schedule to repeat the snapshot schedule indefinitely.

  9. Optional: Enter or modify the name for the new snapshot in the New Snapshot Name field.

    If you leave the field blank, the system uses the time and date of the snapshot's creation as the name.

  10. Optional: Select the Include Snapshots in Replication When Paired check box to ensure that the snapshots are captured in replication when the parent volume is paired.

  11. To change the retention setting, select from the following options:

    • Click Keep Forever to retain the snapshot on the system indefinitely.

    • Click Set Retention Period and use the date spin boxes to select a length of time for the system to retain the snapshot.
