snapdrive snap create failed

Can snapdrive creates a snapshot of a 'connected' file system?

1) on host A I created a snapshot using "snapdrive snap create -fs /home/data -snapname mysnap"

2) on host B I then connected to the filesystem "snapdrive snap connect -fs /home/data -snapname mysnap"
3) on host B I tried to create a snapshot "snapdrive snap create -fs /home/data -snapname xxxxxx"

Re: snapdrive snap create failed

sorry, here is the rest of the question.

----

snapdrive camback with the following error:


     Starting snap create /home/data
          WARNING:  DO NOT CONTROL-C!
          If snap create is interrupted, incomplete snapdrive
                 generated data may remain on the filer volume(s)
                 which may interfere with other snap operations.
              0001-016 Command error: Could not acquire lock file on storage system -
              more than one instance of snapdrive may be trying to create snapshots.

      If no other instance is trying to create a snapshot (even on other hosts),
      please delete file /vol/vol1_0/.snapdrive_lock on storage system netapp and retry.
      To delete the file, login to storage system netapp, enter advanced privilege
      mode and execute the command
      'rm /vol/vol1_0/.snapdrive_lock' at storage system prompt.

I tried this several time and very sure no one else is trying to take a snapshot

of the file system.

Is this the way it is supposed to work? Am I doing something wrong?

Many thanks

I am seeing similar error when trying to take snapshot through SMO

I have checked there is suffecient space for snapshots on the volume.
