hammer cleanup removes snapshots even when retention time is 0 when it ought to have disabled removing snapshots
The hammer man page says
If the snapshots directive has a period of 0 and a retention time
of 0 then snapshot generation is disabled, removal of old snap-
shots are disabled,
So I configured it with the folowing values.
snapshots 0d 0d
prune 1d 5m
rebalance 1d 5m
reblock 1d 5m
recopy 30d 10m
and did a hammer cleanup but lost all snapshots ?
dfly-bkpsrv# hammer cleanup /Backup2/www-5mbak/www-hot/
cleanup /Backup2/www-5mbak/www-hot/ - handle PFS #4 using
snapshots - disabled
prune - run
rebalance - run..
reblock - run....
recopy - run....^Cdfly-bkpsrv#
dfly-bkpsrv# hammer snapls /Backup2/www-5mbak/www-hot/
Snapshots on (null) PFS #4
Transaction ID Timestamp Note
Did I miss some thing some where?
It is just a slave mirror PFS so nothing to worry but I just didn't
get what the man page said.
The retention time inthis case was 0d but removal of old snapshots was
not disabled :-(
