You can remove the SnapMirror status entry corresponding to the volume you backed up.
vol_name is the name of the volume that you backed up.
The SnapMirror status of the volume is displayed. In case of a successful SMTape backup, the source is the volume being backed up and the destination is a Snapshot copy. This Snapshot copy has a name in the snapmirror_tape_hexchar format, in which hexchar is a set of hexadecimal characters specific to the Snapshot copy. In case of a failed SMTape backup, the source is the volume being backed up and the destination is a tape name.
|If the backup...||Then enter the following commands:|
snapmirror release vol_name snapmirror_tape_hexadecimal_char
snapmirror release vol_name filer_name:tape_device
vol_name is the volume being backed up.
filer_name is the name of the storage system to which the tape device is attached.
tape_device is the tape device to which the volume is backed up.
When the backup is successful and the SnapMirror status entry is removed by using the snapmirror release command, SMTape deletes the auto-Snapshot copy. If you specify a Snapshot copy name for the backup, this Snapshot copy is not deleted, but the softlock on this Snapshot copy is removed.
