What are the *-dst.0 files created on snapshot volume

Hi,

   Occasionally notice that these files are left around when snapshots are cleaned up and the owner appears to be unknown.

snap list -b Backup1


Volume Backup1
working...

name                                      owners
------------                              ----------

dataVolumeOne-dst.0               unknown

  Is this some type of NetApp temporary file?  Any best practice to clean up such files?

Thanks,

Hi Marty

I only saw "-dst.0" Snapshots on Snapvault-/SnapMirror-Destination Volumes. Is this volume part of a protection-/dr-relationship?

Kind regards,

Adrian

Re: What are the *-dst.0 files created on snapshot volume

Hi Adrian,

  Yes, the -dst.0 files are on a secondary storage volume where backup data was transferred to the volume via NDMP.

  Perhaps this message title should have referenced secondary volume, instead of snapshot volume...

Best,
