Create a SnapRevert domain

Before you can revert a snapshot that contains a directory, you must create a SnapRevert domain for the directory. It is recommended that you create SnapRevert domains for a directory while the directory is empty.

About this task

The root path of the SnapRevert domain must be the same root path of the snapshot. For example, a domain with a root path of /ifs/data/media cannot be used to revert a snapshot with a root path of /ifs/data/media/archive. To revert /ifs/data/media/archive, you must create a SnapRevert domain with a root path of /ifs/data/media/archive.
