Share revert to snapshot

To revert a share to the latest available snapshot, use the manila revert-to-snapshot.


  • In order to use this feature, the available backend in your deployment must have support for it. The list of backends that support this feature in the manila can be found in the Manila share features support mapping.

  • This feature is only available in API version 2.27 and beyond. To create shares that are revertible, the share type used must contain the extra-spec revert_to_snapshot_support set to True. The default value for this is False.

  • The revert operation can only be performed to the most recent available snapshot of the share known to manila. If revert to an earlier snapshot is desired, later snapshots must explicitly be deleted. In order to determine the most recent snapshot, the created_at field on the snapshot object is used.

While reverting, the share is in reverting status and the snapshot is in restoring status. After a successful restoration, the share and snapshot states will again be set to available. If the restoration fails the share will be set to reverting_error state and the snapshot will be set to available.

When a replicated share is reverted, the share becomes ready to be used only when all active replicas have been reverted. All secondary replicas will remain in out-of-sync state until they are consistent with the active replicas.

To revert a share to a snapshot, run:

$ manila revert-to-snapshot 14ee8575-aac2-44af-8392-d9c9d344f392
