Disable local protection for Application

Hi, 

We have two applications configured on ontap 9.4 and we would like to disable the automatic snapshots:

application show-detail :

 

=============================================================================
Vserver: ISCSI-NFS-DR
Application: driscsids02
Application Template: VSIOnSAN
=============================================================================

Application Protection Information
----------------------------------
Is Supported: true
Is Protected: true
Local RPO: hourly
Local RPO Description: 24 hourly, 7 daily, 2 weekly snapshots
Remote RPO: none
Remote RPO Description: none

SAN Storage Element

Re: Disable local protection for Application

Don't know if  your question is that simple or there is more to it.

 

Ok, anyway this is what you can do to disable the automatic snapshots: 

 

1) Go to SVM : ISCSI-NFS-DR
2) Go to this volume : driscsids02_sata
3) There should be menu items on the top (Not sure, how GUI looks in 9.4, take a look in ONTAP Docs), look for 'snapshot copies' and click Configure, there should be 'Enable schedule snapshots', basically here you can 'disable' automatic or storage side snapshoting. This is a storage side snapshot (Basically crash-consistent), if it's an application then there will some sort of 'snapshots' triggered via backup-host (snapcenter or any 3rd Party software).

 

Looking at the Volume PATH:
Path: /vol/driscsids02_sata/driscsids02_lun

 

In cDOT, we don't use /vol/, it's just root '/'. So, that volume must have been migrated from 7-mode filer ?

 

In any case, you should be able to disable 'automatic' snapshots using the steps mentioned above.

Hi, 

Thanks for the reply. 

the snapshot configuration is not present on the volumes/luns  we can only see it as part of the application

Ok, just give me the screenshot of snapshots for that volume, either via GUI or use following CLI:
::> snapshot show -vserver ISCSI-NFS-DR -volume driscsids02_sata

 

This will easily tell us 'what type of snapshots are configured' .

Re: Disable local protection for Application

Hi, 

Due to the capacity issues that the snapshots was causing we had to delete the application dr-iscsi and create new simple volume. Now we only have one netapp application with this issue - but it is much larger and we can not delete it:

=============================================================================
Vserver: ISCSI-NFS-DR
Application: drnfsds03
Application Template: VSIOnNAS
=============================================================================

Application Protection Information
----------------------------------
Is Supported: true
Is Protected: true
Local RPO: hourly
Local RPO Description: 24 hourly, 7 daily, 2 weekly snapshots
Remote RPO: none
Remote RPO Description: none

NAS Storage Element
-------------------
Component: vsidata_ds
Storage Service: value
Element: drnfsds03_sata
Path: /drnfsds03_vsidata_ds_1
Size: 40TB
Export Policy: esxi-dr-host
Press <space> to page down, <return> for next line, or 'q' to quit...

 

We are manually deleting the snapshots as they fill up my storage: 

 

-c01::application*> snapshot show -vserver ISCSI-NFS-DR

Vserver: ISCSI-NFS-DR

Application: drnfsds03
Protection Group: drnfsds03
