SMSQL snapshots


when using the -gen parameter snapshot names become unknowns, instead of renaming them back to their timestamp names on a Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit) server running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (SP1) - 11.0.3000.0 (X64) Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.2 <X64> (Build 9200: ) (Hypervisor), SnapDrive 7.0.2 (64-bit) and SMSQL 6.0.1?


Here is my code: "C:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapManager for SQL Server\SmsqlJobLauncher.exe" new-backup –svr '''+@SERVERNAME_SMSQL+''' -RetainBackupDays 1 -bksif -RetainSnapofSnapInfoDays 8 -rudays 1 -gen -updmir –mgmt standard'


This only occurs on this volume (Snapinfo) for this server (SACPTSQL5); the other servers using the same code have no issue.
