P2000 G3 snap pools



Is there a way to remove a snap pool without affecting the master volume?

Re: P2000 G3 snap pools

Hi Per,


this is a very good question.

Everytime when i tried to remove a snap-pool i have to convert the Master Volume to a Standard Volume. And everytime the System hangs completely. The only way to get it back running is to plug off the power cables and restart the whole system.

Thats not the best way to deal with data...!


So if anybody can help, it would be nice.

Re: P2000 G3 snap pools

In order to remove i.e. delete a snappool you must You must disassociate all master volumes from the snap pool before you can delete it.

It means you will need convert those volumes to a standard volumes via CLI commands.
Steps 1: show master-volumes which will list all the master volumes.
Step 2: convert master-to-std <volume_name>

You may refer to P2000 CLI Reference Guide for detailed descriptions of these commands here: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02520779/c02520779.pdf
