Applies to

  • SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere (SCV) 4.1.1 and higher
  • NetApp Data Broker (NDB)

Issue

  • An older backup is not deleted according to retention settings, giving the message that the backup is still mounted, although the cloned datastore (volume/LUN) is already detached and cleaned up from ONTAP.
  • The attempt to unmount the backup also fails, since it has no snapshot on storage
