Issue:

 

 

When refreshing a Consistency Group, the operation completes without any error, but review finds that rather than refreshing a new snapshot set is created instead.                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

This occurs if the snapshots in the CG being refreshed are used in a different CG.                                                           

 

 

Change:

 

 

Affects the following versions:   
   
    XMS 6.0.0   
    XMS 6.0.1   
    XMS 6.0.2
                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

This is resolved in XMS version 6.1.0 and later.   
   
    This issue is covered by tracking number XIO-57742 in the release notes.
                                                           

 

 

Notes:

 

 

Note: The issue in this article should not be confused with snapshot refresh operations where a backup copy of the snapshots being refreshed is created by request of the operations (either selecting the field to keep a backup in GUI, or excluding the "no-backup" option in CLI).
