Filer Properties (Snap Configuration) - HP 3PAR

Use this dialog box to specify the details of snap configuration.

Storage Device Group

Specify the name of the CPG group created on the array to be used for snapshot operations. If you do not specify a CPG group, the default CPG group will be used for snapshot operations.

Use Device only from this Group

Select this option to use only the snapshot devices available in the storage pool specified in Storage Device Group.

SMIS Server Port

Specify the value for array SMIS server port. By default, the value is set to 5988.

Use secure connection to SMIS Server

Select to connect to the client using secure socket layer (SSL).

Mount Retry Interval (in seconds)

Specify the time interval (in seconds) after which the next mount operation will be attempted. By default, it is set to 300 seconds.

Enable Parallel Snap Operation

Select this option to enable execution of parallel snap operations. If this option is not enabled on UNIX computers, the execution of multiple snap operations at the same time will be disabled and only one operation at a time will be run.

Some system configurations need setting the additional setting 3PAR_SNAP_NO_PARALLEL to enable parallel snap operations. If that is the case of your system, set the 3PAR_SNAP_NO_PARALLEL to 0.

For instructions on adding the additional setting from the CommCell Console, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.

Enable Thin Provisioning

Select this option to enable usage of thin provisioning volume as the destination volume even though the source volume is a standard volume. When disabled, the destination volume will need to be the same as the source volume (For e.g. standard source volume can use standard destination volume and thin provisioning volume to use thin provisioning volume as destination.)
