Hi


How could i remove Snapshots in Netapp ONTAP 9.2?

After a Server Migration the 2 Shares from the Storage are getting low in space.

In the vmware datastore browser i see the .snapshot directory.

When i connect to my SAN and enter "snap list" i see some TB of Space - which i´m searching for.

Could i get in trouble when i delete it over the datastore browser?


thx a lot

It's read only, you can't delete it via VMware you have to delete it on the SAN vis:
