Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Bonjour from Paris, France.

The name and the created field seems to not mismatch between the output into the powershell and the command line. The command line is accurate. The Toolkit output is wrong.

Test case :

I created a script that list snapshots for a specific volume.

Below is the partial code :

>>get-nasnapshot vol_nav_db_data01 | select created, name

Created                                                                                                     Name

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Hi

Seems to be a consistent 2 hour difference.

Could it be that your workstation is set to one time zone and your filer to another?

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

I'm still not sure what i'm seeing... can you do this please

get-nasnapshot vol_nav_db_data01 | select Name,Created | sort Created -descending

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Hi,

Worstation, Netapp and server in the same tz

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Unfortunately, no, I rease all snapshots. It was a test.

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

What version of the toolkit are you using?

Also check this thread, had similar problems in the past with GMT/BST changes.

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

I'd say the powershell command is returning the raw data from the api of the date in UTC - the filer ontap command returns the date in it's configured timezone, which I'd guess is CEST.

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Two thoughts:

Just so we're clear, run a get-date in powershell and a date in Ontap. Make sure they match.

SMSQL is creating your snapshots, right? Check the server creating the snapshots and see if that server has the correct time as well. If you were to do a snap create <vol> <snapname> and then run a snap list, does it match your get-nasnapshot output (taking SMSQL out of the picture)?

Something is out of whack because the snapshot name and the Created property of the snapshot don't match.

Re: Outputs different betwenn PowerShell toolkit and command line for snapshot name and created date

Which version of the Toolkit are you using?  There was an issue where the UTC time returned by the API was interpreted as a Local time, causing the created value to appear incorrectly.  This was fixed with Toolkit 2.3.  See this thread: https://communities.netapp.com/thread/24886
