On one of my client's volume , under overview , snapshot policy it's note "None".

But there are still snapshots, how it's possible ?

Yes, that's correct. B'cos it is a 'mirrored' destination volume , therefore it  maintains exact copy of the source volume.

Those snapshots that you are seeing may be from the previous policy (ex- default). Storage Admin may have disabled the snapshot policy (set to 'none') for the given volume later on.   Changing the snapshot policy to 'none' do not delete the previous snapshots (unless the prefixes matches) created under a another policy.

 

Ideally, if it's none - You shouldn't see any newer snaps there. How old are they ? Could you share the output.

No it's not because that is recent snapshots. Everyday i got net snapshot !

Thanks for the screenshot.  You can see the volume 'Type' is - Data Protection. So, this is the SnapMirrored destination volume, so it's picking up those snapshots as part of the Mirror transfer. Please check it's Source Relationship, the source volume would be 'Type' - Read & Write.

Yes it's "Read&Write". So on the destination volume, snapshot correspond to snapshots on the source volume ?
