Re: Snapvault Volume to Volume backup

You can snapvault non-qtree data in a volume:

> snapvault start -S prim_system:/vol/vol_name/- /vol/vol_name/qtree_name

See also the manuals: https://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel801/html/ontap/onlinebk/GUID-67A4A9AB-DBD5-4040-B52B-B62EB06F2BBD.html

The downside of putting your LUNs outside qtrees is that you need to backup all LUNs to same snapvault destination volume and qtree and therefore can't split the data over multiple volumes, with each it's own snapvault schedule, and aggregates on the destination. If you want to be flexible on the snapvault destination side you should move the LUNs to their own qtree. You can non-disruptively move LUNs to a qtree in the same volume with the "lun move" command.
