Independent snapshot creation & retention for Primary & Secondary?

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I already searched around a bit and found a few workarounds and so on, but as far as I can see, there is no easy way to configure really independent Primary snapshots & SnapVault snapshots & retentions in one config?

 

What I specifically want to achieve is to have hourly & daily snapshots on the Primary and weekly and monthly snapshots on the Secondary only.

 

Ideally the weekly SnapVault snapshot should be created on the Secondary without having to create a weekly on the Primary first. So SnapCreator would check if the configured SnapVault transfer is running and only creates the secondary afterwards.

 

I want to achieve this purely with SC Framework, so no snapvault snap sched on the Secondary and also no Protection Manager please (7-Mode here still).

 

Sure, I can SC just let create a snapshot on the Secondary by schedule, but then it would not check if any transfers are still running.

 

Is this possible at all with the current SnapCreator version?

Marcel,

 

I don't believe that this configuration is supported today.

 

I forwarded the thread to the product management team as this is not the first time I've seen this request.

 

Thanks,
