New to NetApp snapshots -- How can I mount a snapshot lvm's filesystems onto HP-UX

I am creating daily snapshots on HP-UX 11.31.  I would like to mount the snapshot on the server where the LUN is mounted and copy the data to another server.  How can I mount this snapshot using HP-UX LVM?

Have a look in the NetApp Documentation "Block Access Management Guide for iSCSI and FC" on page 192 and onwards.

Re: New to NetApp snapshots -- How can I mount a snapshot lvm's filesystems onto HP-UX

Thanks for your input, but is there documentation that is actually usable pertaining to HP-UX?

These commands on p 193 do not exist in my installation of Snapdrive 4.2 for HP-UX ---

2. Create a Snapshot copy by entering the following command:

snap create volume_name snapshot_name

Example

snap create vol1 payroll_backup

3. To create a clone of the production LUN, enter the following command:

lun clone create clone_lunpath -b parent_lunpath parent_snap

Example

lun clone create /vol/vol1/qtree_1/payroll_lun_clone -b /vol/vol1/

qtree_1/payroll_lun payroll_backup

4. Create an igroup that includes the WWPN of the backup server by entering the following

command:

igroup create -f-t ostype group
