I've just inherited a FAS system and I'm really not sure what my predecessor was up to. I've found some snapshots that are in the status busy,vclone and so cannot delete them.
I'm needing a little help in finding out what these snaps are doing, if they are in use, how to remove the locks and then delete them. Some of these snapshots have been around for 6 months+.
The system is a FAS 8020 8.3. I've seen a a post which is a similar issue to mine that talks about runing the volume status -v to find out if there are any dependencies but this command doesn't work on my system.
Here is an example of one of the snpashots, I have a bunch of others to clean up.
phscdchsc01::> volume snapshot show vol_name -instance
Vserver: vserver_name Volume: vol_name Snapshot: cl0ne_name Creation Time: Thu Apr 16 09:57:44 2015 Snapshot Busy: true List of Owners: volume clone Snapshot Size: 30.50GB Percentage of Total Blocks: 1% Percentage of Used Blocks: 2% Comment: - 7-Mode Snapshot: false Label for SnapMirror Operations: - Snapshot State: - Constituent Snapshot: false
Thanks in advance....
I think I've found my own answer. I have to split the FlexVol Clone and then I'll be in a position to clean up.
