Single File Restore - SIS Clone in 7-Mode?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

another quick question: Does SnapCreator in any way support SIS Clone restore for Single File Restores in 7-Mode?

 

When I do a Single File Restore, it always uses SFSR (8.2.2 7-Mode), despite us having FlexClone licensed.

 

SFSR needs a very long time for large files until they are fully restored.

 

Doing a 'clone start' on the Filer CLI is lightning fast (as expected). So can SnapCreator be instructed to use that instead of pure SFSR?

 

Setting NTAP_SNAPSHOT_RESTORE_AUTO_DETECT=Y still results in a SFSR.

 

I also tried messing around with setting the workflow step for 'restoreOfFiles' from 'fileRestore' to 'sisCloneRestore', but then the task fails with:

Hi Marcel

 

 SIS clone is supported only in c-mode.
