filerview ver. 7.2 When I schedule a snapshot it does not do anything. It used to be ok and for the past couple of months it refuses to work. I can do a manual snapshot under storevault manager but not according to a schedule. Please let me know why I am not able to schedule snapshots. Thank you.
I hardly ever use filerview, so I cannot speak to why filerview might not be working correctly. If you would like help configuring the snapshots from the command line, I'd be more than happy to provide some suggestions. Are you using SnapVault snapshots or ordinary volume snapshots? The commands and their syntaxes are different. Also, if you are using SnapVault snapshots on a volume, best practices recommend that you disable ordinary snapshots on that volume.
Thanks for your reply paleon. I really do not know the difference between SnapVault snapshots and ordinary snapshots. How can I tell? I will try to insert an image of what I do to get a manual snapshot since the schedule is not working. I am unable to insert image. Keep getting error.
Please bear in mind that weekly snapshots have a higher priority than nightly snapshots and that nightly snapshots have a higher priority than hourly snapshots. As a result, at 00:00 on Sunday night, a volume which is configured to create both weekly and nightly snapshots will create a weekly snapshot but not a nightly snapshot.
If you want to check a volume's snapshot schedule, you can type:
snap sched [volname]
If no volume is specified, you will see the snapshot schedules for all volumes on that controller.
SnapVault snapshots are a bit more complicated to explain. Do you use SnapVault on your filers?
