Forcing Unmount Snapshots

The force unmount operation marks the snapshot as unmounted, and does not physically unmount the snapshot on the MediaAgent or on the storage array.

You can use the force unmount operation on multinode mounts.

Before You Begin

Unmap the snapshot from the storage array and clean up the mount host computer and the logical volume manager (LVM).


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > agent.
  2. Right-click the backupset, subclient, or instance, point to All Tasks, and then click List Snapshots.
  3. On the Snapshots created during IntelliSnap operation dialog box, right-click the snapshot that you want to select, and then click Force Unmount.

    The Enter Confirmation dialog box appears

  4. Enter the confirmation text string, force unmount snapshots, and then click OK.
