Hello,

 

If the snapshot on the volume level was deleted; you either have to restore from a tape backup or if you have aggregate level snapshot to restore from.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

Aggr level snapshot and vol level snapshot are two different thing. keep in mind, when restoring using the aggregate snapshot, all volume under that aggregate will be restored.

Hello,

 

Thank for the nice information.

Could we do Granular restore for an aggregate level snapshot? or if I restore a snapshot from the aggregate level, I don't have the option to restore just 1 volume?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

With aggregate snapshot, there is no option to restore a single volume.

 

Thanks
