Answer

Yes, it is possible to retain the Snapshot by renaming the Snapshot name from the one defined in the Snapshot policy.

Example:

  1. Rename the Snapshot:
    Cluster1::> volume snapshot rename -vserver svm1 -volume rename -snapshot 5minS.2020-09-16_1815 -new-name 5minS.2020-09-16_1815_RENAMED
  2. next Day, the renamed Snapshot remains until manually deleted:
    cluster1::> volume snapshot show -vserver svm1 -volume rename
                                                                     ---Blocks---
    Vserver  Volume   Snapshot                                  Size Total% Used%
    -------- -------- ------------------------------------- -------- ------ -----
    svm1     rename
