DELVOL

The DELVOL command is used to delete backup versions created by the full-volume dump policy runs. The Model9 server finalization process automatically deletes expired backups as part of the generation management process.

DELVOL - Logic

The user must have READ access to the Model9 Resource M9.CLI.DELVOL.

The deleted full-volume dump will be visible in the UI until a periodic synchronization, which by default, is performed automatically every 5 minutes. If needed, on-demand synchronization can be performed via the UI, by clicking the “SYNC WITH STORAGE” button in the “Agents” tab. See the Administration and User Guide for more information.

Warning

The DELVOL action cannot be undone.
