The snapmirror delete command removes the SnapMirror relationship between a source endpoint and a destination endpoint. The destination endpoint can be a Vserver, a volume, or a non-Data ONTAP endpoint. The Vservers, volumes and non-Data ONTAP destinations are not destroyed and Snapshot copies on the volumes are not removed.

Therefore, Snapshot copies that are locked by SnapMirror on the source container cannot be cleaned up using the snapmirror release command. If the source container is a Data ONTAP volume, in order to reclaim space captured in the base Snapshot copy on the volume, issue a snapshot delete command specifying the -ignore-owners parameter in diag privilege level.
