Deletion of Root Volume Snapshot Failed
- Clustered Data ONTAP 8.x
- ONTAP 9.x
The feature described in this article provides the capability to backup and restore the configuration information. This feature depends on a number of other modules.
- It saves the generated backup files on the root volumes.
- It relies on cluster jobs to create cluster backup archives.
- It uses an FR service to copy the backup archives among the nodes in the cluster.
- It creates root volume snapshots when creating backup archives.
If any of these dependent modules fail, this feature will fail its functionality.
