Data ONTAP 8.3.1P1 through 9.2

Issue

  • Different prefix set for Snapshots than expected.
  • Snapshot policies created without specifying a prefix for the schedule are being automatically prefixed with the schedule name. Deleted the incorrect policies and recreated them with the correct prefix, however the old one is still being applied.
  • When Snapshot policies are created and a prefix is specified for a schedule, the prefix sometimes does not apply to the created scheduled Snapshot copies.

This issue can also happen when schedules are added to existing Snapshot policies.
