The RestAPI is fully backward compatible and the snapshot functionality remains the same in 4.0.2. There were some new parameters included in the RestAPI calls with XtremIO 4.0.2 release and hence the new version of the guide.

You need to provide a value for “no-backup”.

As the Restful API guide says, if ‘no-backup’ is included in the request, the source object is removed (regardless of the value entered for this property).

Marvin,

How come you step through the volumes one at a time to delete them instead of just deleting the ${SSOLD} snapshot set using the remove-snapshot-set command?

Thanks

The commands were provided by Scott H. from EMC.  I am not that skilled in XIO CLI yet to have re-engineered them for improved efficiency. 

In reference to another post regarding the "no-backup" option, IIRC, this particular option actually caused the problem.  It is supposed to be fixed in the latest fix that is now available.  Caution: if you are an EPIC shop do not apply the patch until you talk to Steve Lazer of EMC (EPIC people will know him).  He is EMC's EPIC specialist and recommends you do NOT install this patch.  We are fortunate enough to have (2) XIO clusters, one EPIC, one non-EPIC.  We will be applying the full patch to the non-EPIC cluster to test it.

i am curious what's in the patch that is apparently not appropriate for EPIC shops ?

Perhaps another someone in a long line of Diva's has yet to put their blessing on it?

Dynamox,

(long time no talk!)

Whether the array is VNX, VMAX, or XTremIO, the EMC Epic Healthcare team doesn't approve a code level for deployment in Epic shops until internal testing has been completed under Epic workloads.

Hi Aran,

Do you know if the same restrictions applies to Cerner ?

I don't believe so. Cerner uses Oracle as their backend database which is a more common and understood workload on XtremIO compared to InterSystems Cache.
