NetApp Snaplock - alter previous settings
Mailbox partitions were defined in the beginning of an archive project as a “NetApp device [Snaplock]” from the EV side.
From what I’ve read in the white papers it says that once you’ve defined the partition as [Snaplock] it cannot be changed.
Now i've been asked for the ability to delete items from EV, but deletion is unsuccessful because of the Snaplock.
I’ve searched the SQL DB, and found a table called dbo.partitionentry where “writeoncemedia” configured on value of 1 (snaplock).
I’ve created a test partition and gave it the NetApp snaplock as well, which created the value of 1, than – I change it to 0 and refreshed the vault console. And the test partition change from “NetApp Device [Snaplock]” to “NetApp Device” (without the snaplock).
Can anyone confirm that by changing the SQL value from 1 to 0 I actually made the vault think that this is no more a snaplock device? And I can continue with assigning delete permission to users?
