Thanks for your reply. I asked the storage people and this is the response that I got:
"not a netapp, its on a dell box"
Anything else that it could be?
Try to create a snapshot manually and after that do DELETE ALL to clear all the snapshot in a chain and then check if snapshot is getting created or not?
After digging around some more I discovered that OpenSuSE installs a tool called “snapper” which manages snapshots. I disabled it and expect these snapshots to step being created and taking up the entire hard drive.
Thank you both for your input.
