Enabling and disabling HDFS snapshots
For snapshots to be created, HDFS directories must be enabled for snapshots. You cannot specify a directory as part of a snapshot policy unless it has been enabled for snapshots.
Minimum Required Role: Cluster Administrator (also provided by Full Administrator).
- Go to the tab.
- Go to the directory you want to enable for snapshots.
Click the drop-down menu next to the full file path and select
Click Disable Snapshots to disable snapshots for a
directory that has snapshots enabled.
