Checking a status of a snapshot


I would like to check the status of a snapshot. Specfically I was to see if a particular snapshot is locked due to a FlexClone... Any suggestions how to do that?





PS C:\> Get-NaSnapshot -TargetName vol2

Name                                               Created      Total Cumulative Dependency

Thanks Clinton. For anyone in the future, here is what I was trying to do. Test a snapshot status in a while loop;

Connect-NaController $SM_Dest_Controller -Credential $cred

while ($SMSnap.busy)

{ $SMSnap = Get-NaSnapshot -TargetName $SM_Dest_Vol -SnapName $SMSnap.name

start-sleep -minutes 15}
