Options to backup data from 8.2.2 to 7.3.3 filer

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I am looking for possible solutions to backup a volume from new filer running data ontap 8.3.3 in cluster-mode to an old filer with OS version 7.3.3

Guessing snap mirror is not an option since the source and destination filers should have same O.S versions.

Is Snap vault an option ? Any other suggestions ?

 

Thanks!

From page # 225 of Data ONTAP® 8.2 Data Protection Online Backup and Recovery Guide For 7 mode at https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1635994

 

"Note: SnapVault behavior is independent of the Data ONTAP version that is installed on the primary or secondary system, and the aggregate type. For example, you can back up data from a primary system that has Data ONTAP 7.3 installed to a secondary system that has Data ONTAP 7.1 installed. You can also back up data from a primary system that has Data ONTAP 7.1 installed to a secondary system that has Data ONTAP 7.3 installed."
