SSSU ADD SNAPSHOT with dynamic date field name

Does anyone out there know if it is possible to throw some kind of wildcard or use a date variable for snapshot scripting? If you select disks in RSM GUI and create snapshots or through commandview, you are given the option of using the creation date and time. I would like to use this in my scripts as well, but it appears that my only option is to manually name the snapshots. Considering the length of time it takes to delete the old snapshot, and if I want this to run daily, I would have to create a script that updates my script based on system time or something similar...Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

...If anyone has an example of how they accomplish this (if it is not natively available in SSSU), I would be forever in your debt if you post it.

Sorry, no variables in SSSU. You need a master script that would in turn create the specific instances of the scripts to create and delete the snapshots.

As far as examples, it would depend on what OS(es) you have that can run the SSSU client.

If using Windows/Dos scripting, you could start with something like this (filling in your own eva, manager, username, password of course!) - this is using a renamed sssu.exe that includes the version and build.

FOR /f "tokens=2 delims= " %%D in ('echo %DATE:/=%') do SET DATEN=%%D
echo %daten%
SET TESTF=\Hosts\\
echo %testf%
sssu_v6_34 "select manager evamgr u=admin p=password" "select system EVA01" "ls folder %testf%"

Note the last line wrapped - and I don't need you to be in debt to me - but assigning a few points would be nice!
