Snapshot policies automatically manage Snapshot copy schedules and retention on FlexVol volumes or Infinite Volumes. You must be a cluster administrator or Vserver administrator to perform most of the Snapshot policy commands.
What the default Snapshot policy for an Infinite Volume is
The default Snapshot policy for an Infinite Volume is named default-1weekly, and the Snapshot policy includes a default schedule for creating Snapshot copies of the Infinite Volume. You can modify the default Snapshot policy, or you can assign a custom Snapshot policy to an Infinite Volume.
Commands for managing Snapshot policies and schedules
Cluster administrators can use the volume snapshot policy commands to create and manage all Snapshot copy policies. Vserver administrators can use the same commands to create and manage Snapshot policies within Vservers.
Naming convention for scheduled Snapshot copies
The scheduled Snapshot copy name is composed of an optional prefix or the schedule name specified in the Snapshot policy, and the timestamp. Snapshot names cannot be longer than 255 characters.
What prefixes are
A prefix is an optional string that you can specify to be used in creating automatic Snapshot copies. Using prefixes in Snapshot names provides more flexibility than using schedule names in naming automatic Snapshot copies.
