Could we create a dfm Snapshot for dataset protection (local backup) without using the Timestamp flag '%T' in the naming format ?
C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\bin>dfpm dataset modify -s %L.%2 SnapForBackup
Error: Could not modify dataset SnapForBackup. Reason: Invalid format '%L.%2' specified for snapshot naming. Timestamp is mandatory for snapshot namin
g format. Please specify the timestamp attribute '%T' in the naming format.
In fact I would like to use dfm to create periodically a Snapshot on a volume in order to backup it on tape ! So the Snapshot name must be always the same, that's why I don't want to use a Timestamp in the snapshot naming format.
Thank you for your help.
