SnapMirror Break and Snapshot Schedule


I have a volume with hourly snapshots scheduled on it.

The volume is SnapMirrored to another location.  The volume options and snapshot schedule are updated at the snapmirror destination if I change the source of the snapmirror.

When I break the snapmirror I was expecting hourly snapshots to be taken at the destination as well as at the source but they are not.

If I check the snap sched on the destination volume I can see that it is set and if I check the nosnap volume option on the destination I can also see that it is off.

Are snapshots not being taken because the filer still knows that this is a snapshot destination?  I think I will try reversing the snapmirror to see what happens and/or releasing the snapmirror.

When I reversed the Snapmirror relationship the snapshots started to be created at the old destination, now the source.
