Not able to delete Snapvault busy Snapshot

Hi,

 

I was not able to delete snapvault busy snapshot. I dont see any clone's with respect to the snapshot but i see there is DEDPUPLICATION enabled on this particular snapvault volume.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

Deduplication will not cause this issue. Refer the links below:

Re: Not able to delete Snapvault busy Snapshot

Actually the snapshot was DUMP backup snapshot which was in locked state. As i understand it is a bug in netapp where after creating a DUMP cannot delete snapshot
