Considerations for restoring a Snapshot copy

Before restoring Snapshot copies, ensure that you are not using the file system, and that you do not interrupt the restore process.

Before restoring a Snapshot copy, consider the following important information:

  • Ensure you are not in any directory on a file system that you want to restore. You can perform the snapdrive snap restore command from any directory except the one on a file system to which you want to restore the information.

  • Do not interrupt the restore operation by entering Ctrl-C. Doing so could leave your system in an unusable configuration. If that happens, you might have to contact the NetApp technical support to recover.

  • When exporting the NFS entities to a volume, set the Anonymous User ID option to “0” for the snapdrive snap restore command to work successfully.
