Creating snapshots

Storage Advisor Embedded User Guide

Part Number

You can create snapshots manually.

  1. In the dashboard or in the navigation bar, click Servers. If you are not using Storage Advisor Embedded to manage servers, click Volumes in the dashboard or in the navigation bar, and then skip to step 3.
  2. Click the server name to open the server details page.
  3. Select one or more volumes and click (Create Snapshots).
  4. Specify the required information and then create the snapshots.

    Be sure to select a pool that has a sufficient amount of free space. The snapshots, including those that already exist, might become unusable if the pool usage rate exceeds the depletion threshold value.

    Differential data cannot be stored in a tiered pool.

    If a volume shares data reduction with snapshots, you must specify the pool name to which the volume belongs.
