Determining access times from an NFS client

When Data ONTAP creates a Snapshot copy, the access time of each file in the Snapshot copy is updated to the Snapshot copy creation time. You can use the ls -lu command to see the access times.


  1. To determine when Snapshot copies were created, from an NFS client, enter the following command: ls -lu filename .snapshot/*/file_name


ls -lu myfile.txt .snapshot/*/myfile.txt-rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 14 09:40 myfile.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 14 00:00 .snapshot/nightly.0/myfile.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 13 00:00 .snapshot/nightly.1/myfile.txt
Note: On a UNIX client, the times listed by the ls -l command reflect the modification times of the directory at the time of each Snapshot copy, and are not related to the times at which the Snapshot copies are created.
