Create a snapshot schedule
Create a snapshot schedule for Endurance storage.

This method is not valid for Legacy iSCSI Storage Volumes. You need to have already purchased snapshot space for the script to work properly.

import SoftLayer

client = SoftLayer.Client()
storageId = 11657445

# Define parameters for snapshot
scheduleType = 'WEEKLY'
retentionCount = '20'
minute = '1'
hour = '13'
dayOfWeek = 'SUNDAY'

try:
    result = client['SoftLayer_Network_Storage'].enableSnapshots(scheduleType, retentionCount, minute, hour, dayOfWeek, id=storageId)
    print (result)
except SoftLayer.SoftLayerAPIError as e:
    print("Error: "
          % (e.faultCode, e.faultString))
