Description:

An XtremIO document which details the cause and resolution of situations in which the refresh operation of a snapshot and/or snapshot set does not reflect on the host when that snapshot and/or snapshot set is mapped to VPLEX.

 

Resolution:

For snapshots and/or snapshot sets that are mapped to VPLEX initiators, please execute the following steps to refresh those snapshots and/or snapshot sets from a volume or group of volumes (consistency group) respectively:

1- Unmount the snapshot(s) on the host side

2- Refresh the snapshot and/or snapshot set from the parent volume consistency group
