How SDW knows which snapshot is inconsistent?

According to the manual:

Any Snapshot copies inadvertently made at the storage system console or through FilerView are dimmed (unavailable) in the SnapDrive MMC plug-in and are not usable by SnapDrive.

How does SD recognize that snapshot was created manually?

Actually, its the other way around. While creating a Snapshot from SDW, it sets a specific attribute on the LUN which it evaluates everytime a Snap specific operation is requested.

Hope this helps.
