I have to following situation:
Netapp 3210, Ontap 8.0.2P3, 64-bit aggregates
Netapp 2050, Ontap 7.3.6P5, 32-bit aggregate
I have qtree snapmirror relations running between the two...no problem here!
The challenge (for me) is to update the qtree snapmirror relation with the snapshot created by Snapmanager (SQL / Exchange).
To let Snapmanager update the Snapmirror relation after operation is only possible when using volume Snapmirror.
Is is possible (using CLI) to do this for qtree snapmirror relations ?!?!
Thanks for you reply!!

Sorry to hijack your thread! I have a similar situation to you with a 2240 doing qsm to a 3140 (7.2.3). After the initial creation with -s, how are you updating the destination to ensure backups are valid?

Make sure you use the "-gen" option in the joblauncher of Snapmanager SQL/Exchange etc. This way the must recent application consistent snapshot always has the same name. Now it's easy to automate using for example "plink" (or some identical SSH tool) to update the QSM.
I use something like this: snapmirror update -s sqlsnap__servername__recent /vol/volume-name/qtree-name
Hope this helps!
