I have found it. No wonder it was not working as the account limit was causing the problem
and not the snapshot type limit :)
The account snapshot limit needs to be larger than the number of snapshots you want to rotate...
I wonder which is the next global parameter I do not understand properly :)

Subject: Snapshot weirdness


I have scheduled hourly snapshots (keep 8) and daily snapshots (keep 7) on one of my ROOT
03 Jul 2012 17:16:23

After 02:16 no more hourly snapshots were created. The scheduler wants to run them, but gets:

I have:
snapshot.max.hourly (Maximum hourly snapshots for a volume) set to 8 which would make sense
why the resource limits kick in.
However either the snapshot scheduler or storage cleanup or something should remove the oldest
snapshot allowing snapshot rotation I'd say.
It seems the scheduler does not so the storage cleanup then, but that runs once a day so the
snapshots would be blocked until it cleans up?

Could someone shed some light on this snapshot weirdness?
What limits do I need to set where to allow hourly snapshosts with rotation?
