Guidelines for deleting Snapshot copies
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You cannot delete a Snapshot copy that is in use, or if the Snapshot copy is across multiple storage system volumes.
Follow these guidelines when you use the
snapdrive snap delete command:
The Snapshot delete operation fails if any of the Snapshot copies you want to delete are in use, or not created by SnapDrive for UNIX. You can override this behavior by including the
-forceoption with the
snapdrive snap deletecommand.
If you have a Snapshot copy that spans multiple storage system volumes, you must manually delete the Snapshot copy on each volume.
