How to avoid Snapshot copy schedule conflicts

If SnapVault is scheduled to perform Snapshot copy management at the same time as default snap sched activity, then the Snapshot copy management operations scheduled using the snap sched command might fail with syslog messages, Skipping creation of hourly snapshot, and 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 create Snapshot copies.

Note: You can disable the snap sched schedule and only use the snapvault snap sched command to create Snapshot copies. Therefore, to track the schedule for creating Snapshot copies, look at the snapvault snap sched output, and not the snap sched output.
