How to list contents of files and folders in a snapshot

pal

Hi,

Are there any way in CLI or powershell/dataontap to list the contents of a snapshot ?

In UM GUI restore only displays 7 items at the time.

Hi,

 

You could potentially list the contents of the volume snapshot\directory using the Read-NcDirectory CmdLet. EG

 

PS C:\> get-help Read-NcDirectory

NAME
    Read-NcDirectory

SYNOPSIS
    List the contents of a directory.


SYNTAX
    Read-NcDirectory [-Path] <String> [-Attributes <FileInfo>] [-VserverContext <String>] [-Controller <NcController[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

    Read-NcDirectory -Template [-VserverContext <String>] [-Controller <NcController[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

I posted an example here (for 7-mode) but the same principle applies. You'd just need to adjust the CmdLets for cDOT and the mount point of the directory (including the snapshot name) you wanted to list files in.
