Answer

There are two types of snapshot policies

  1. Policies assigned to the Cluster.
  2. Policies assigned to a SVM.

Example of each.

The primary location for viewing Snapshot Policies will be located in Protection->Snapshot Policies. This page is for viewing Snapshot Policies assigned to the Cluster.

To locate Snapshot Policies assign to a SVM you can look under Storage->SVMs->select an SVM Name. After the SVM is selected, you can either right click on the SVM and choose SVM settings, or click the SVM Settings cog in the upper right of the screen. You can then click on Snapshot Policies.

In the new UI all snapshot polices can be seen when navigating to Protection ->Overview->Local Policy Settings->Snapshot Policies OR Storage VMs->Selecting a SVM->Settings->Snapshot Policy.
