You cannot modify the snap reserve of a root volume by design.

 

Attempting from the ONTAP CLI yields the following output:

Is the goal to recover some additional space in the root volume in this case?

because it is a simulator,

so I want to stop the snapshot

The Snapshots in the root vol can be useful for events like deleted core files that need to be re-uploaded.

 

However you should be able to modify the volume attributes to stop volume snapshots. Otherwise reducing the snap reserve doesn't stop snapshots it will start to bleed over into the volume space over time unless you disable snapshots.
