SnapVaulting a SnapMirror destination in OnCommand

Guys,

Following my previous thread about getting SV to work over a non-primary interface (now working ), I have run into another challenge....

is there any functionality within OC do simply transfer the SM destination snaphot in any given SV backup job, as opposed to SV trying to Snap the destination volume (and obviously failing)? Script or otherwise?

Thanks.

The best answer is use Protection Manager. It knows how to manage SM->SV cascades.

Yes protection mgr could handle this. Is this what you are looking for? :

[root@shoemaker-rhel6x64-01 ~]# dfpm policy list 69

Id   Name                                                    Policy Type     Description

---- ------------------------------------------------------- --------------- ----------------------------

  69 Mirror, then back up                                    Data Protection Local backups on primary, then mirror primary to secondary, then back up secondary to tertiary

If you create an app dataset it would do named snapshot transfer from the SM destination. If you create a normal dataset it would simply do a  transfer the SM destination snapshot.

Try the Mirror then backup policy of protection manger.
