How to delete snapshot that has space in name?

Thank you in advance for whom assist me with this challenge.

 

We have snapshots in SnapVault environment created by SnapCenter VmWare plugin which were given Resource name "Tier 0".   I need to delete all of those with the space in between the letter "r" and number zero (0). I didn't venture using Tier* because of the concern that it will also delete all newer snapshots which we have created that doesn't have the space in it.

 

Any suggestions?

2 possible ways:

1. via GUI

2. via CLI (simply created it and deleted in a lab)

 

ontap93a::> vol snapshot create -vserver test_serg -volume data_serg -snapshot "tier 0"

ontap93a::> vol snapshot show -vserver test_serg -volume data_serg

Thanks for your suggestions and taking the time to help me.

 

Yet it was multi snapshots I needed to delete -- those with the space.

Just a few minutes ago, I had a followup from someone else and this is what took care of it via CLI on the SnapVault site, then it allowed me to select those which had the space before the zero (0).

 

snapshot delete -volume xxxxxx -vserver svmxxxAmazon -snapshot Tier*

 

Warning: Deleting a Snapshot copy permanently removes any data that is stored only in that Snapshot copy. Are you
sure you want to delete Snapshot copy "Tier 0_xxxxxx_12-10-2018_03.00.01.8376" for volume
"xxxxxxxxxxx" in Vserver "svmxxxAmazon" ? {y|n}: y

 

Then when I had no more with the space, I repled 'n' and stopped the delete.
