How to manage Snapshot copies of LVM, raw devices, and NFS entities

You can use the SnapDrive commands to create, restore, and manage Snapshot copies of LVM, raw devices and NFS entities.

You must run the commands on the host to create, restore, and manage Snapshot copies of storage entities.

The Snapshot copy that you create can exist on multiple storage systems and storage system volumes. SnapDrive checks the read or write privilege against the storage entities in the Snapshot copy to ensure that all Snapshot copy data is crash-consistent. SnapDrive does not create a Snapshot copy unless the data is crash-consistent.
