SMSQL - Snap restore error - cannot find snapinfo file

We have been using Snapmanager for SQL for some time and restoring/cloning a snapshot from production to a developement host with no issues. Just recently we are receiving this messages after it mounts the LUN on the target SQL host (instance). Attached is the full SQL restore log.   At the top of the log file is the versioning of Windows and SMSQL we are using..

 

Database administrator attempted a restore from production to production (same host), it works fine.    

 

Any ideas?

let me add that production instance runs on virtual machine SQLVM01 while dev/uat instances run on SQLVM02. All supported on Windows 2012 using ISCI protocol.

Re: SMSQL - Snap restore error - cannot find snapinfo file

The restore is attempting to use the latest snapshot as selected by the SQL administrator.

We have restored in this manner for a good amount time now but last restore attempt (again using latest snapshot) produced the error described about the "snapinfo file...'.
