Can't delete snapshot

I have many snapshot volumes that have multiple children with odd names that can't be deleted.

I have about 300 of these:

Could not remove any vv from the vv list.

Need to delete ldv Lds before deleting VV vvcp.27663.RW
VV vvcp.27663.RO has snapshot children which must be removed first.

Re: Can't delete snapshot

"vvcp." is used when making a Full Copy and keeping the snapshot for recynching in the future. I've not seen a "tss-" snapshot, but given the volume IDs, it looks like each set of three was created at the same time.

I'm guessing you are making use of Full Copies?
