Volume Clone and Tamperproof Snapshots

Hi,

 

a few days ago i made a volume clon from a snapshot to restore a virtual machine.

 

After i finished the restore, i wasn't able to delete the volume, because the volume which i cloned got the same snapshot settings as the source volume. And the source has tamperproof snapthots enabled.

 

I had luck, the retention for the hourly snapshots is one day, so i disabled the scheduled snapshots and wait one day to delete the volume.

 

My question to think about: Is it useful to enable tamperproof snapshots on a volume clone per default when on the source enabed?

 

Kind regards

Stefan
