This issue has been solved. See solution.
I can't understand what is the difference between snapshot and recovery point in SSR.
I  reads in the manual that I can start an script after SSR makes the snapshot or after makes the recovery point.
But, what is the diference?
Thank.

What is the difference between snapshot and recovery point in Symantec System Recovery 2011?

Markus Koestler's picture

Snapshot=Taking the information sectorwise from the disk

Recovery point = Writing the information to the backup destination -->*.v2i, *.sv2i files

or put otherwise:

pre command -->take Snapshot-->Post command-->create recovery point-->after command

a typical pre command would be to stop a non VSS aware database so that the files are not in use and the backup is consistend

a typical post command would be to start the database

anything still unclear ?

Thank Markus.

Now I can understand.
Both terms looked like equals for me.
