Last Updated:

Applies to

  • CommVault Intellisnap 11
  • Active IQ Unified Manager 9.x
  • ONTAP 9

Issue

  • CommVault rotates snapshots according to its own database but some snapshots are not deleted
  • there is no pattern, all random, several clusters are affected
  • no error in CommVault because CommVault sends the expiry flag for the snapshot successfully to CommVault
  • Unified Manager deletes these snapshots
  • Unified Manager has no errors in the main logs but zapioutbound log shows the failed requests

Example of failed request
