Why are my Snapmirror snapshots being renamed

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.7x
  • ONTAP Snapshots
  • FAS8300


Snapshots on a snapmirror source are not named as expected:

Cluster::> snapshot show -vserver name    -volume name    -fields create-time , size
vserver    volume         snapshot                    create-time          size
---------- ---------- -----------------------       --------------        -------
Source side snapshots which are getting renamed are :
vserver volume PMSPRD_daily.1_2021-01-21_1932     Thu Jan 21 19:32:21 2021 1.03GB
vserver volume PMSPRD_daily.0_2021-01-22_1932     Fri Jan 22 19:32:25 2021 735.2MB

The expected snapshot naming convention is: 
vserver volume PMSPRD_daily.1                     Sat Jan 23 19:32:27 2021 983.7MB
vserver volume PMSPRD_daily.0                     Sun Jan 24 19:32:28 2021 164KB
