I am moving backup to znapzend. I see the following error on the backup server. However the backups are working fine and I can see the latest snapshots the backup server. The errors below pertain to old snapshots and I am not sure (a) if they matter or can be ignored (b) how to stop them:

[ID 702911 daemon.warning] ERROR: cannot destroy snapshot(s)

.... followed by an old snapshot.

The snapshot referred to does not exist on the backup.

znapzend complains if zfs destroy fs@snapshot fails ... but it will retry on the next round ... my guess is that there was a problem but it resolved itself and on the next round, the snapshot got destroyed without complaint.
