Snapvault release: / is not a valid primary path.

[ Edited ]

owbsljtdb02:/                             dcbsnap02:/vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02

dcbsnap02*> snapvault release / dcbsnap02:/vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02

/ is not a valid primary path.

usage:

On a snapvault primary:

snapvault release <primary_path> <secondary_filer>:<secondary_path>

On a snapvault secondary:

snapvault release <secondary_path> <primary_system_path>

        where <primary_system_path> is <primary_system>:<restored_path>

ideas short of destroying the volume?    I'm just starting with OSSV so it's no big loss, however is a typo occours in the future, how would I fix this?  So far no amount of escaping the / worked.

Snapvault release: / is not a valid primary path.

Your primary path is something like FILER:/vol/volumeXY/qtreeZ, or in the case of OSSV, something like SERVER:/C:/

If in doubt, just copy/paste the output of "snapvault status"

I did copy the output.  it fails.

it doesn't believe a simple "/" is a valid path.

I think there's something wrong with what you pasted here. It says that your primary path is "owbsljtdb02:/" and your secondary path is "dcbsnap02:/vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02". But snapvault release tells you that the first argument should be the secondary path and the second argument the primary.

So I *think* you have to type

  snapvault release /vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02 owbsljtdb02:/

on your filer (sorry, but I don't have an OSSV system here to test at the moment)

dcbsnap02> snapvault release /vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02 owbsljtdb02:/

/vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02 owbsljtdb02:/: No release-able destination found that matches those parameters.

Use 'snapvault destinations' to see a list of release-able destinations.

I think I found "yet another bug"..... argh.   might crack open a case with support.

Snapvault release: / is not a valid primary path.

could you try it with only the secondary path? as in

filer> snapvault release /vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02

also, maybe post the output of "snapvault status" and "snapvault destinations", too.

I don't think it's a bug, this would be a rather big one and thus it would be noticed almost instantly

Snapvault release: / is not a valid primary path.

the output is in the orignal post

owbsljtdb02:/                             dcbsnap02:/vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02

I tried it all the various combo's you can. can't release it on the secondary side. the primary side has released it already.

Snapvault release: / is not a valid primary path.

Aah. If the source hass already released the relationship then you can simply do

  snapvault stop /vol/ossv_backup01/obsljtdb02

to remove the QTree and delete the backed up data
