If SnapVault is scheduled to perform Snapshot copy management at the same time as the default snapshot sched activity, the Snapshot copy management operations scheduled using the snap sched command might fail with syslog messages.
About this task
The Snapshot copy
management operations scheduled using the snap sched
command might fail with the syslog messages “Skipping creation of hourly snapshot” or “Snapshot already exists." To avoid this condition, you should disable the conflicting times using snap sched
, and use the snapvault snap sched
command to configure equivalent schedules.
- To turn off the regular schedule of Snapshot copies, enter the following command: snap sched volume 0 0 0
