Scheduling Snapshot Deletion with HP RSM

Hello, I am currently using HP's RSM ver 5.1 on a EVA 44000 SAN.
Currently have 2x EVA 4400 SAN one as production and the other as DR.
Am using CA to replicate LUNS across SANS and using Business Copy to get snapshots on the DR SAN.
Scheduling Snapshots is fine. However, cant see any options for deleting the Snapshots using RSM.
Hence, I would very much like to schedule deletion of snapshots so as to avoid my SAN filling UP.
Is it possible with RSM to schedule the deletion of Snapshots??

 

P.S. This thread has been moevd from General to Storage Area Networks (SAN) (Enterprise). - Hp forum Moderator

Re: Scheduling Snapshot Deletion with HP RSM

I have noticed that custom scripts can be done on RSM. However, I'm not too much into scripting and need a bit of help here. Any suggestion/help will be very much appreciated.

It is easy if you give the Snap alwas the same name by the creation:

 

$snap_vol = SetVariable ( "\\EVA\Windows\ServerX-LUN01\ServerX-LUN01-Snap1" )

// Delete old Snapshot                     
DeleteStorageVolume ( $snap_vol ) onerror goto E2:
