Consistency Group Snapshot is a Snapshot copy of a set of volumes that span different Vservers or nodes of a cluster, which is managed as a single entity.

SnapDrive for UNIX captures crash-consistent Snapshot copies across all volumes spanning different Vservers or nodes of a cluster. You can also configure the time period within which the Snapshot copy is to be captured.

SnapDrive for UNIX captures consistency group Snapshot copies by default. You can disable this feature and revert to capturing Snapshot copies in best-effort mode.

SnapDrive for UNIX 5.2 supports consistency group Snapshot copies for clustered Data ONTAP only in Data ONTAP 8.2 or later versions.
