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.

require 'softlayer_api'
require 'pp'

# Credentials to the API are read from a configuration file by default.
# See https://github.com/softlayer/softlayer-ruby/blob/master/lib/softlayer/Config.rb#L11-L44
client = SoftLayer::Client.new(:timeout => 120)

storageId = 11657445

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

snap = client['SoftLayer_Network_Storage']
enable = snap.object_with_id(storageId).enableSnapshots(scheduleType, retentionCount, minute, hour, dayOfWeek)
pp enable
