Can I manually change drive status information

Created: 01 Feb 2013 • Updated: 07 Mar 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Server 2008r2, SFWHA5.1. I while back I had my main drive go corrupt. I renamed one of my snapshot drives changed the drive letter and I was back up and running. My question is the Volume status is "Healthy(Shadow copy - read/write), NTFS"

Is there a way to remove the "(Shadow Copy - read/write)" part so it goes back to the original "Healthy, NTFS"?

Use snapclear - see extract from SFW Admin guide:

 

vxassist snapclear
vxassist -g<DynamicDiskGroupName> snapclear
<VolumeName |SnapVolumeName | DriveLetter | VmName |DrivePath>
[plex=<SnapPlexName>] [<SnapshotName>]
Clears the association between the original volume and the snapshot
volume and makes the snapshot volume and original volume two
independent volumes. The vxassist snapclear command can be
specified only after the vxassist snapshot command has been issued.
After the vxassist snapclear command runs, the snapshot volume
becomes an ordinary volume and cannot be snapped back to the original
volume.
You can probably do this from GUI also - just see if "snapclear" option is there.
