Data Backup and Recovery Discussions
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?
See The Solution
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.
