Enable and disable snapshot creation using Cloudera Manager
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.
- From the Clusters tab, select the HDFS service.
- Go to the File Browser tab.
- Go to the directory you want to enable for snapshots.
In the File Browser, click the drop-down menu next to the full file path and
select Enable Snapshots.
