Hey guys I was wondering is it possible to snapvault a snapmirror Destination. Logic tells me you cant because the snapmirror
destination volume is read-only therefor snapvault cannot take a snapshot on the destination volume.
A better picture of this is
volA ----SNAPMIRROR ------>[volA destination]------SNAPVAULT------->[Snapvault Destination]

You actually can do that, as SnapVault is a pull operation: snapshots are created at the SV destination & are independent of source snapshots.
The flipside to that is if you have any application-consistent snapshots in your SM target they will not be seen / preserved after cascading via SV (allegedly it may change in a future).
