ONTAP Snapshots will begin to be supported with AltaVault starting in the next release, which is due sometime before the end of January. From a restore perspective, you can manage and recover objects using SnapCenter's new version, which is also coming out in this timeframe. SnapCenter provides the management and catalog for the Snapshots sent to AltaVault. Of course, you can always restore the files directly via the ONTAP CLI, if you have syntax experience.

Is Altavault compatible to 7-mode(8.x) also or is just for cluster-mode (8.x and 9.x) for SM
Struggling to find the list of ontap version, which altavault supports.

support starts with OnTap 9.1, AltaVault 4.3.(x) and SnapCenter 2.0.
Can be found at IMT

assuming the SnapCenter advanced license is not an option for us, how could I do restores?
You mentioned the CLI - could you please share a few command examples?

You would use ONTAP CLI to issue a restore of a single file from the volume (a SFR or single file restore operation).
Syntax is documented in the ONTAP documentation but would look something like:
snapmirror restore -source-path <ava share> -destination-path VSname:volname -file-list -source-snapshot snapname
Refer to ONTAP documentation for details:

1) If we wish to replicate this environment , snapmirror for 9.1 and AV-V .. peering need to be done ? If so , do you have any specific documents for peering with AV-V.
2) Below given document have sysntex for SM creation
cluster1::> snapmirror create -source-path : -destination-path :/share/share_name -type XDP
here share_name will automatically created in AV-V ??
Sorry too many questions in one post .

Not sure if this has been answered, but I didn't see any reply.
Peering is done on the AVA via a "whitelist" - a list of the intercluster replication lifs from the source cluster(s). That list can be found in the AVA GUI once you enable SnapMirror.
Yes, the share on the AVA is created as part of the SnapMirror relationship creation on the source filer.

Will SM initialization/baseline transfer be required between Source filer and AVA, which to transfer the entire initial volume data over to AVA first?
