.Snapshot & snapreserve

Hello,

by default each volume that you create has a .snapshot directory when you do a df -V -h

but with one volume I have a snap reserve.

see attachment

what is the difference between the two and what did i do wrong?

Re: .Snapshot & snapreserve

This is due to one of the volume options "nosnapdir".

Check my outputs of "df" and "vol options" commands for 2 volumes:

Filer> df -Vh GBRLON05VF001_TST03
Filesystem               total       used      avail capacity  Mounted on
/vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/     1024GB      156KB     1023GB       0%  /vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/
/vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/.snapshot      256GB        0KB      256GB       0%  /vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/.snapshot

Filer> df -Vh OS_DUMP

Re: .Snapshot & snapreserve

This lun has already some vm's in it.

The lun is also protected with SMVI.

I Assume there is no problem turning the option on

Re: .Snapshot & snapreserve

This is an volume option and nothing to do with LUNs under it. by making it on, you are just making it hidden.

Re: .Snapshot & snapreserve

Mohit is correct. All you are doing is hiding the snapshot directory (.snapshot) for that volume, regardless of what you have in the vol.

Re: .Snapshot & snapreserve

you   mixep up snap reserve with  snap directory visibility ...   !

Filer> df -Vh GBRLON05VF001_TST03
Filesystem                total       used      avail capacity  Mounted on
/vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/      1024GB      156KB     1023GB       0%  /vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/
/vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/.snapshot       256GB        0KB      256GB       0%   /vol/GBRLON05VF001_TST03/.snapshot

Filer> df -Vh OS_DUMP
Filesystem                total       used      avail capacity  Mounted on
/vol/OS_DUMP/             100GB      144KB       99GB       0%  /vol/OS_DUMP/
snap  reserve               0KB        0KB        0KB     ---%   /vol/OS_DUMP/..

the above volume has a snap reserve >0  and the upper not  (0)  ..  thats the difference between both volumes !

Hi Lutz,

i was just showing the requestee abt the differnece in the volume options i.e. "nosnapdir"  option... which was the all abt the question asked.....
