I have two 2520 in two seperate locations. They both are running 8.3.2.
In 7-mode I created several setups with a small number of snapshots on the primary and a larger number on the snapvault side.
I am trying to recreate this in C-mode.
So I have one volume on SAS disks on the primary.
I created a schedule for hourly, daily and a few weekly snapshots. I labeled them hourly, daily and weekly.
I can create a snapvault policy using these labels and assign a different (longer) retention.
Now, here is my question, Can I also create monthly and even yearly backups on the snapvault side?
I do not have the space on the primary to keep monthly and yearly backups.
Primary: 48 hourly; 7 daily; 2 weekly
Snapvault: 14 daily; 8 weekly; 6 monthly; 2 yearly
Thanks for your thoughts and answers!

Yes, you can have yearly backups as well. Extended retention rules apply to longer term retention, such as weekly full backups, monthly full backups, and yearly full backups. refer http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3920.pdf
