Unpreserving a Snapshot copy

If you do not want to retain the Snapshot copy that you have preserved, you need to unpreserve the Snapshot copies.

Before you begin

You can list all preserved Snapshot copies by using the snapvault snap preserve command.

Step

  1. To unpreserve a Snapshot copy, run the following command: snapvault snap unpreserve vol_name snapshot_name [tag_name|-all]
    If tag_name is specified, then the Snapshot copy that is preserved with the specified tag name is removed.

    If tag_name is not specified, then Snapshot copies preserved without a tag name are removed.

    If the -all option is specified, all preservations on a specified Snapshot copy are removed.

    Example
    snapvault snap unpreserve vol1 snap1 -all
