Example

This example shows how to remove snapshots of several volumes.

You will need to perform the following steps:

  1. Get the volume snapshots you want to remove. To do this, perform the following steps:
  • Run Get-StoragePluginHost to get the storage. Save the result to the $storage variable.
  • Run Get-StoragePluginVolume with the $storage variable to get the storage volumes. Save each volume to a separate variable: $volume1, $volume2, etc.
  • Run Get-StoragePluginSnapshot with the $volume1 and $volume2 variables. Save the result to the $snapshot variable.
  1. Remove the snapshots. Run Remove-StoragePluginSnapshot with the $snapshot variable.

PS C:\PS> $storage = Get-StoragePluginHost -Name "IBM Spectrum"

PS C:\PS> $volume1 = Get-StoragePluginVolume -Host $storage -Name "VOLUME-01"

PS C:\PS> $volume2 = Get-StoragePluginVolume -Host $storage -Name "VOLUME-02"

PS C:\PS> $snapshot = Get-StoragePluginSnapshot -Volume $volume1, $volume2

PS C:\PS> Remove-StoragePluginSnapshot -Snapshot $snapshot
