SnapDrive snapshots with snapmirror label

I need to get an application consistant snapshot of an RDM volume, which I am during by running the following script to take a weekly backup of the D drive on a server. The only problem with this is I don't seem to be able to apply a snapmirror label to the snapshot. I can't seem to find an option to do this using the sdcli commands.

 

sdcli snap create -s sd_weekly.0 -D d -u
sdcli snapvault archive -force -a sd_weekly_%DATE:~6,4%%DATE:~3,2%%DATE:~0,2% -DS d sd_weekly.0
sdcli snap delete -D d -s sd_weekly.1
sdcli snap rename -d d -o sd_weekly.0 -n sd_weekly.1

 

So I have written the following powershell script to apply a snapmirror label to the snapshot, which works but when I run the last command to return the results it doesn't do so.

 

Import-Module DataONTAP

Connect-NcController -name Filer1

$q = Get-NcSnapshot -Template

$q.Name = "sd_weekly.0"

$a = Get-NcSnapshot -Template

$a.SnapmirrorLabel = "Weekly"

Get-NcSnapshot -Volume server01_d -SnapName sd_weekly.0 | Update-NcSnapshot -Query $q -Attributes $a

Get-NcSnapshot -Volume server01_d -SnapName sd_weekly.0 | Select-Object Volume,SnapmirrorLabel

 

However if I run the following from putty on the filer1 it does show that it has updated the snapmirror label

 

 snapshot show -vserver SVM01 -volume server01_d -fields snapmirror-label

 

Does anyone have any idea's on how I can get this to update correctly in powershell??
