Take a Single Snapshot

Overview

An iSCSI snapshot captures the contents of an iSCSI LUN.  Within the Customer Portal, snapshots may be taken on an individual basis or may be scheduled to be taken in intervals.  When taking a single snapshot, a snapshot of the LUN is taken in its current state at the time it is requested and is stored in the Snapshots section of the iSCSI LUN within the Portal.  Follow the steps below to take a single snapshot of an iSCSI LUN.
