Cisco Nexus Snapshot

The snapshot feature looks like a very interesting and useful feature to use but I'm having problems in two different boxes with different NX-OS versions, the error is basically the exact same error:

I have tried in nxos.7.0.3.I6.1 and nxos.7.0.3.I2.2d. Any idea why this problem?

Hi there,

 

The CLI syntax to create a snapshot is the following:

 

9396-VTEP-RTP# which | i i snapshot.create
(5605) snapshot create <snapshot-name> <snapshot-description> 

In your case, you are missing the "description" and therefore it is an incomplete command. See example below:

 

Without description:

 

9396-VTEP-RTP# snapshot create before_maintenance
                ^
% Invalid command at '^' marker.

Adding the description:

 

9396-VTEP-RTP# snapshot create Forum before_maintenance
Executing 'show interface'... Done
Executing 'show ip route summary vrf all'... Done
Executing 'show ipv6 route summary vrf all'... Done

Executing 'show ip ospf vrf all'... Done
Feature 'ospfv3' not enabled, skipping...
Feature 'isis' not enabled, skipping...
Feature 'rip' not enabled, skipping...
No user sections for snapshot

Hope that helps!
