Happy new Year and pardon the ignorance. Just a bit of confusion on my part - as I wish to setup snapvault backup jobs with ops manager / dfm. I am running version 4.02 and I have a fas6280 for the primary san and wish to snapvault to a v6210 san. The dataset would be snapped machines that are on NFS datastores for our esxi 4.1 virtual environment. I see a lot of the command line stuff but nothing with the gui. Once i have this implimented I wish to have other admins to have access to perform a restore if needed. I also have VSC installed where I can take advantage and perform snaps before the snaps would age off but before aging off I wish to have those snaps snapvaulted to the 6210..

Thanks. But I am already aware of this solution and using it. But I want to setup snapvault via ops manager so I can turn over a “GUI” type of way for a person to backup restore..
I tried importing the external relationship but that didn’t work out to well for me and I think that would only work for “viewing”. Then again I may be showing my ignorance of snapvault and ops manager comingled.

DFM/OM works fine with SnapVault on CIFS/NFS data and any other SAN data that has a Snap Product which integrates SnapVault. SnapManager for SQL and Exchange both have built in support for SnapVault for example.
For whatever reason, VSC supports SnapMirror, but not SnapVault. I have heard that SnapVault will be added to VSC in the near future.
the solution in my original post was created because of the VSC's lack of support for SnapVault.

If you upgrade to OnCommand 5.0 (DFM 5.0) then you can create and manage SMVI snaps and SV them off directly. The UI for this is a bit weird, and in particular when you assign a storage service, don't set a schedule there, set the schedule in the OnCommand console webapp.
