Script To Remove All Orphaned Snapshots

Hi All,

 

I remember hearing at one time that Nimble was in the process of making/providing a script (or function in the management GUI) to remove all orphaned snapshots from an array. Is this accurate? How can a customer go about getting it? Manually removing orphaned snapshots on 50+ volumes is time consuming, especially when there is approximately 30 seconds worth of processing time once you confirm the snapshot removal on the volume.

 

Also, what is the proper way to ensure that orphaned snapshots do NOT occur if removing a volume from a protection group?

 

Thanks
