Only "non-qtree data" registered in Protection Manager

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I'm currently evaluating "Snap Creator" and encounters some problems.

I generated a snapshot through "Snap Creator" but it has only registered the "non-qtree data" in "Protection Manager".

I do not see the qtree when I try to do a restore through the "NetApp Management Console".

Log :

What could be wrong ?

Could you please email me the below information to sivar at netapp.com

1) snapcreator .conf file

2) dfpm dataset list -x <datasetid>

3) snapmirror status (and) snapvault status  from the NetApp console

4) what do these qtrees contain -  cifs/nfs data or luns (fcp/iscsi)?

Thanks,

Only "non-qtree data" registered in Protection Manager

Adding the qtree (/vol/myvol/qtree) and the "non-qtree data" (/vol/myvol/-) ressources to the dataset, solved the issue.

Snap Creator doesn't list the qtree contained in a volume when you add the volume itself as the resource of the dataset (/vol/myvol).

I am documenting this and will also update the install/admin guides.




Re: Only "non-qtree data" registered in Protection Manager

As a future enhancement, it would be nice that "Snap Creator" get the list of qtree in a volume when it discover a volume as the primary physical ressource of a dataset, to register all snapshots in "Protection Manager" without the need of adding qtree as ressources

Agree I entered an RFE for this so hopefully in a future release this is fixed

Hi Keith,

Have you got a response regarding the RFE? IHAC that just hit this problem as well in multiple environments...

Avi,

I can confirm that this RFE was entered, but it has not currently been scoped or assigned to a release.

Thanks,

Do you know if there is a pre-script or plugin or some kind of workaround that can run in every backup in order to check for newly created qtrees and create SV relationship for them?

Re: Only "non-qtree data" registered in Protection Manager

Avish -

I'm pretty sure the scope of setting up the relationships is better suited when the qtree is created. You might be able to also leverage the SC bindings to update the config?

Thanks,
