MSA 2012fc + Turn Off Snapshot

does anyone know how you convert a snapshot master volume back into a standard disk.

no snapshot data exists on the snap pool.

the snap pool cannot be deleted with the master pool still associated.

i'd like to eventually delete the snap pool and use the array's full capacity.

the unit is in test phase so not live data is involved.

hopefully the solution is more elegant than blow the v disks out.

thanks.

Anthony,

You need to use the cli.

Dleted all the snapshots and later converted the volume to standard. No data loss occured.

CLI ref guide:

You can use the commands:
# delete all-snapshots volume
# convert master-to-std

Thank you for the solution.
