Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Data ONTAP 8
  • Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode
  • Linux 2.6.18 or higher

Issue

  • A Linux system running kernel 2.6.x creates a mount point when accessing the .snapshot directory via NFS.
  • A simple mount on the Linux host displays a large number of snapshots seemingly mounted randomly. This behavior occurs usually after about 4 hours after a server reboot. These are obviously not listed in /etc/fstab:
    • 1.1.1.1:/some_export/cluster/.snapshot/hourly.2015-08-03_0705 on /somemount/.snapshot/hourly.2015-08-03_0705 type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,namlen=255,soft,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sy s,mountproto=,local_lock=none,addr=10.1.100.101)
