can you snapvault many source volumes to one destination volume?

We have a few FAS3140s and would like to snapvault between them for backup/DR.

One of the filers is used for many VMs running Oracle.  Each one of the VMs has a volume for the Oracle data so that we can snap the data at different times.

We want to snapvault these volumes to another filer.

What I would like to do is have one big snapvault volume that all the source volumes go into.

So for example on filerA (the source) we have

/vol/vol1

/vol/vol2

/vol/vol3

...

/vol/volN

on the destination I would like a volume:

/vol/sv1

Then the qtrees that the vaults would go to would be

/vol/sv1/vol1

/vol/sv1/vol2

etc

I had tried this but it didn't work right.  What would happen is that say I would baseline with vol1 then the snap for vol2 would transfer and be 100% different than vol1, then vol3 would transfer and be 100% different than vol2, then the next day vol1 would be 100% different than vol3.

Thanks

Do you use Protection manager ( OnCommand Management software) ? If you do then this I believe is possible by altering the  option dpMaxFanInRatio.

Provided the data in the volumes on filer1 is not in qtrees:

FilerA:/vol/vol1/-     FilerB:/vol/sv1/FilerA_vol1

Otherwise:

FilerA:/vol/vol1/qtree1     FilerB:/vol/sv1/vol1_qtree1

FilerA:/vol/vol1/qtree2     FilerB:/vol/sv1/vol1_qtree2

FilerA:/vol/vol1/-             FilerB:/vol/sv1/vol1_non_qtree_data
