:Yes I checked it for both Master and Slave PFS the meta-data does get mirrored.
:Some of them has 'migrated' at the end of it what does it mean?

    'migrated' is just in the comment field for the snapshot.
    The comment field can be set when making manual snapshots

:is it possible to access the snapshot If I know the TID?
:So as of now is it that I lost all the snapshots for my slave and I
:have to manually  take snapshots of of the Slave PFS and store it some
:where outside the PFS untill something is implemented for
:Yes Matt thanks :-)

    Yes, just use a similar path to the way the softlinks are
    constructed, using the TID, e.g.:

    cd <fs>/@@0x000000017627d370

    The snapshots are still there (pruning is governed by
    the snapshot list in the meta-data).  If you want a
    convenient set of softlinks you can construct them
    by writing a little script based on the snapls output.
