Question

Snapshot disappearing after being transferred between 2 accounts

Hi all, I’m trying to transfer a snapshot from account A (the droplet owner) to B (the receiver) and everything seems to be ok.

But when I try to create a droplet from the transferred snapshot in account B, the app states Oops something went wrong… and the snapshot disappears.

I’ve tried changing snapshot region before transferring it but the result doesn’t change…

I’ve tried several times, each with the same outcome… Anyone can help?

I’ve experienced the same behavior… This looks like an admin panel bug or some strange behavior of background processes

I just check again today and the transfer worked without issues. Also, my snapshots that I transferred from a few days ago were now showing up and available to select as well. Looks like it’s fixed but I haven’t been notified by anyone from DO.

I encountered the same issue today and have a ticket open with the DO support team.

They informed me they are aware of the issue and are looking into it. I am seeing the following error on the accept snapshots transfer page, which “may” be the issue.

“GET https://cloud.digitalocean.com/api/v1/regions/8 404”

I’m hoping this is fixed ASAP since there is no Droplet transfer option - I rely solely on the snapshot transfer feature.
