I'm trying to create a t-sql query that can determine whether or not a given database has any database snapshots that were created from it.
For example, if I were to create a snapshot like this:
CREATE DATABASE [DatabaseA_Snapshot] ON (NAME=DatabaseA, FileName='<whatever>') AS SNAPSHOT OF [DatabaseA]
Is there a way I can query for the existence of that snapshot again later? I can see that it shows up in sys.databases, but I couldn't find any information that would help me determine that it's a database snapshot that was created from DatabaseA.
SQL Server Management Studio's Object Explorer places it under the 'Database Snapshots' folder so there's obviously some way to differentiate these from regular databases.
