Create a Volume Snapshot

You can use ZFSSA to take instantaneous snapshots of volumes (and projects). To take the fullest advantage of this feature, it is recommended that you group related LUNs into projects so you can take a consolidated snapshot of all related LUNs with a single snapshot.

Note -  Snapshots will consume space from the available storage capacity of the ZFSSA.

Complete these steps to create a snapshot:

  1. Log in to ZFSSA using the opc user account.
  2. Navigate from the Shares > Projects screen of the BUI, and select the project of which you want to take a snapshot.

    In this example, the project name is opc.

  3. Select the Snapshots tab and click the (+) button next to the Snapshots label, as shown here.

  4. Enter the name for the snapshot in the window that appears and click OK.
