Ok, I understand that you can restore a volume from a snapvaulted volume back to the primary. But is it possible to restore snapvaulted snapshots to the secondary? Here's a scenario: Say the data center where my primary was located is destroyed and I need to restore snapvaulted volume data on the secondary to the secondary (i.e. for DR. creating new volumes/qtrees to share out to servers) is this possible?
snapvault restore - is only available on the primary.
snap restore - does not seem to like the snapvault format.

Well after playing around it appears that dat can be restored with "vol copy." Here's what I used...
1 - create a new volume.
vol create dest_vol 100g aggrX
2 - select the snapvault snap that you want to restore from.
snap list source_vol
3 - offline the destation volume before vol copy.
vol offline dest_vol
4 - copy data from snapvaulted snap to new dest_vol.
vol copy start -s snapvault_snapshot.0 source_vol dest_vol
5 - bring the dest_vol back online.
vol online dest_vol
