Rename a snapshot

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


The volume snapshot rename command renames a Snapshot copy.

Note You cannot rename a Snapshot copy that is created as a reference copy during the execution of the volume move command.

This command is not supported on Infinite Volumes.

This specifies the Vserver that contains the volume on which the specified Snapshot copy is to be renamed

-volume <volume name> - Volume

This specifies the volume that contains the Snapshot copy to be renamed.

-snapshot <snapshot name> - Snapshot

This specifies the Snapshot copy that is to be renamed.

-new-name <snapshot name> - Snapshot New Name

This specifies the new name for the Snapshot copy.

[-force <true>] - Force Rename (privilege: advanced)

If this parameter is specified, the Snapshot copy rename operation is allowed on application tagged volumes. Otherwise, the operation is disallowed on application tagged volumes.


The following example renames a Snapshot copy named vol3_snap on a volume named vol3 and a Vserver named vs0. The Snapshot copy is renamed to vol3_snap_archive.

cluster1::> volume snapshot rename -vserver vs0 -volume vol3
-snapshot vol3_snap -new-name vol3_snap_archive
