Busy snapshot in a volume deletion.

Dear all,

I ever setup a snapshot named as "temp" as in following snapshot list of one volume:

  %/used       %/total  date          name
----------  ----------  ------------  --------
  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 09 00:00  nightly.0
  2% ( 2%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 08 08:00  hourly.0
  2% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 08 00:00  nightly.1
  4% ( 2%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 07 18:00  hourly.1
  4% ( 1%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 07 00:00  weekly.0
  6% ( 2%)    1% ( 0%)  Dec 06 00:00  nightly.2
10% ( 4%)    1% ( 0%)  Nov 30 20:57  temp           (busy,LUNs)

Its status keeps busy always, as you can see above. Right now, I want delete this "temp" snapshot from the volume, then it showed me as:

Snapshot temp is busy because of LUN clone

My question is how to delete this busy snapshot? How to stop the clone of LUN? Where can I see this LUN clone procedure or session?

Thanks A Lot!

Good Day, everyone!

Hi my friend

This is neto from Brazil

How are you?

You need to check:

Lun show

Lun offline clonedlun

Lun destroy clonedlun

Probably you will need to delete the newest snapshots, because as you have used lun clone, those snapshots have the lun also.

If you delete the newest snapshots, you will be able to delete the snapshot or make it not busy.

All the best

You can check with the "lun snap usage" command which other snapshots you need to delete before you can delete the busy snapshot.
