Subject Re: snapshot.backup.rightafter parameter problem for RBD Storage
Date Fri, 30 Oct 2015 08:22:02 GMT
Hi Özhan,

this is by design, the idea being you take a snapshot which you can then
download if you require (the same goes for templates you create). To allow
downloads the snapshot requires to be accessible from the SSVM, I.e. it
has to be copied to secondary storage.
