Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Volume(s) migrated using copy-free transition (CFT)

Issue

  • At some point after a CFT, snapshots can no longer be created on a volume, either automatically or manually:
Cluster01::> snapshot create -vserver svm1 -volume vol1 -snapshot test
Error: command failed: Failed to create snapshot "test" of volume "vol1" on Vserver "svm1". Reason: Snapshot
already exists.
  • A volume snapshot show command confirms the snapshot does not exist:
Cluster1::> volume snapshot show -vserver svm1 -volume vol1
