SnapProtect - Initiating a Vault or Mirror Copy for Microsoft Hyper-V

Before you begin, check whether you meet the following requirements:

  • To use the NetApp SnapVault/SnapMirror feature, you must have the NetApp Snap Management license
  • Set up the SnapVault/Snap Mirror protection type. For details about the setup, see Set up SnapVault or SnapMirror.

Follow the steps to initiate a Vault or a Mirror copy:

  1. From the CommCell Console, navigate to Policies | Storage Policies.

    Right-click the storage policy and click All Tasks | Run Auxiliary Copy.

    The AuxCopy Options dialog box appears.

  2. To configure the schedule pattern, on the Job Initiation tab, select Schedule and click Configure.
  3. In the Schedule Details dialog box, enter the schedule name and select the appropriate scheduling options, and click OK.

    When the Vault or Mirror copy of the snapshot is created, you cannot re-copy the same snapshot to the Vault or Mirror destination.
