Github user mike-tutkowski commented on the issue:
    Let me provide a bit of background on this and then we can decide which way we want to
correct this side effect.
    Here is the PR that went in a while ago that enabled CloudStack to support volume snapshots
that reside on primary storage:
    The idea being these types of snapshots are faster than the back-up-to-secondary-storage
approach CloudStack does by default and they can be a lot more space efficient, as well.
    As part of this process, I went through and tried to identify all of the locations where
we assumed a volume snapshot resided on secondary storage (and I put in code to see if it
really resides there or, instead, if it's on primary storage).
    As we have noted, a couple places were missed and this PR (as wells as #1735) were opened
to address those issues.
    The way this particular PR's code is written should work fine. In the case where the original
primary storage has been removed, an exception will be thrown, caught, logged, and then we
will default to returning secondary storage as the location (which it should be).
    Instead of the try/catch approach, though, it might be better if we see if dataStore is
    DataStore dataStore = dataStoreMgr.getDataStore(storagePoolId, DataStoreRole.Primary);
    If that comes back null, then we apparently have removed primary storage, which can only
be done if your snapshots don't reside on it. If dataStore == null, return DataStoreRole.IMAGE.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
