SC 4.0P1 OSSV integration tutorial/sample config

[ Edited ]

Hi community,

I've tried to integrate OSSV into SnapCreator but did not get it working yet.

The idea would be to replace our existing OSSV backup jobs in Protection Manager with jobs in SnapCreator.

Does anybody have a working OSSV configuration for Windows or even a short tutorial how to set it up in SC (GUI or plain config file editing)?

Stephan,

1) Install OnCommand on the host

2) Add the destination controller in Oncommand.

3) Install OSSV

4) Create a source vol in OSSV machine. For Ex :- c\sv

5) Create a destination volume in filer

6) Create SV relation ship on Destination filer

filer> snapvault start -S OSSVHOST:c:\sv /vol/svtdest/cdrive1

Snapvault configuration for the qtree has been set.

Transfer started.

Monitor progress with 'snapvault status' or the snapmirror log.

filer> snapvault status

Snapvault is ON.

Source                Destination                      State          Lag        Status

OSSVHOST:c:\sv filer:/vol/svdest/cdrive1  Uninitialized  -          Transferring

filer> snapvault status

Snapvault is ON.

Source                Destination                      State          Lag        Status

OSSVHOST:c:\sv    filer:/vol/svdest/cdrive1  Snapvaulted    00:03:36   Idle

7) Make Sure following parameters are set in ossv conf  (adjust per your setup)

VOLUMES=OSSVHOST:c\sv

NTAP_USERS=filer:root/password

NTAP_SNAPVAULT_RETENTIONS=daily:1

NTAP_SNAPVAULT_WAIT=60

SNAPVAULT_VOLUMES=OSSVHOST:c\sv

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT=N

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_CMD01=

NTAP_OSSV_HOMEDIR="C:\Program Files\NetApp\snapvault"

NTAP_OSSV_ENABLE=Y

APP_IGNORE_ERROR=Y

8) Make sure in agent.conf file you put a "command:*"  in scAgent.

8) Trigger action ossv.

All SC will do is to go to the source (OSSV host), and run snapvault status to know the destination, and go to the destination to run snapvault update.

Please let me know the errors/issues that you see when setting this up.

Thanks,
