Use the snapshot primary name to create the snapshot secondary name (app dataset with remote backup policy)

Hi,

I was very surprised that we can construct the secondary snapshot name in OnCommand Protection Mgr, but it is not possible to use the snapshot name which was used for the Snapvault transfer...

Scenario :

- Create application consistent backup on primary with snapcreator with timestamped snapshot name on different volumes

- Register with snapcreator this primeary backup

- Snapcreator launch the PM protection policy

- At the end of transfer snapshot name is created with the dataset snapshot name policy.

If we can use the same snapshot name on primary and on secondary backup administrators will be pleased to have consistency.

Do you think there is a trick I can use ?

Thanks.

Hi,

    I understand, that would be a good to have one, but some ppl also like to have a different retention than on the primary.AFAIK, there is not trick, but there is a cumbersome way of doing it.

Once PM creates the snapshots, rename the same, as you would like and re-register the backup version.All has to be done using SDK.
