Re: [linux-lvm] Snapshots problem

Hello All,

I have a strange issue of the snapshots on my Linux machine. Currently my Linux version is 2.4.18-snap.clipper. I have two snapshots are shown as ORPHAN which cannot be deleted (another thing is their date are shown as 'bogus' in snaptab). This causes the issue that all the snapshots following them cannot be deleted also. Is there any forced method can achieve my goal? Which command should I use and what kind of document can be found on some web sites?


From the Linux version and the mention of the snaptab, you must be using something from SnapAppliance. Have you tried talking to customer support? Snap uses my chained snapshot patch, which isn't part of the LVM1 cvs tree -- that's why the following snapshots can't be deleted, there's a snapshot depending on them. For documentation, I'd also check SnapAppliance.

I can tell you that if you reboot the snapshots will almost certainly be deletable. You should still talk to customer support, as they'll probably want your logs to find out what went wrong.
