Hi Karthik,

You can check out the following documentation:

http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel733/pdfs/ontap/onlinebk.pdf (Page 234)

SnapVault primary and secondary on the same system

In Data ONTAP 7.3 and later, the SnapVault primary and secondary features can be on the same system. However, you need to enable both the SnapVault primary and the SnapVault secondary licenses on the same system.

After enabling both the SnapVault primary and secondary licenses on one system, you can use the system in both of the following ways.

• SnapVault destination for one or multiple backup relationships.

• Both SnapVault source and SnapVault destination for the same backup relationship. For example, by using SnapVault you can back up data from FC aggregates to ATA aggregates connected to the same system.

Note:

The source and destination qtrees cannot be within the same volume.

Thanks and regards

Hi Karthik,

AFAIK for SnapVault, you would need both Primary and Secondary to be licensed. If you are planning to have SnapVault within a single controller, then you must have SnapVault primary and SnapVault secondary licensed on that same node.
