This is very urgent! IHAC that is hitting the 255 snapshot limit on the SnapInfo LUN. This is happening when we already set to delete snapinfo snapshots in excess of 8. Is there another place else in SMSQL to set number of snapshots retained for snapinfo? filerview scheduler is already turned off for snapshots on snapinfo volume. It looks like SMSQL is ignoring "in access of 8" completely? Thank you for your help!
Using SMSQL v5 I have hourly transaction logs backups, and daily full backups running. I keep all snaps for 7 days.
This works fine for all drives other than the SnapInfo drive - despite me setting "RetainSnapInfoDays 7" it never deletes any snapshots - in my case my volume then fills before I hit the 255 snapshot limit.
But I think its the same issue. I just had my NetApp consultants check the configuration last week but still the problem persists. Old SnapInfo snapshots just don't get deleted.
