We just had a filer implementation and our supplier installed the NetApp Management Console. This console provides a dashboard with to modules (I think these are the modules you installed but anyway)
We have a tab Protection and a tab Provisioning. In Protection you can create a data set which holds volumes and shedules and so on which will perform an automated snapmirror and snapvault between 2 or more systems.
It will do everything automatically. So much for the intro, now my questions:
* Is there any Admin guide for this??? Can't find it and the naming is not really straight-forward if you ask me.
* Is there debug logging available because the info given in the application is next to nothing
* we have an issue where the volumes are not getting resized however if we just go to the filer via the CLI a vol size xxx +1x works just fine
-> it's a thin provisioned, snapmirrored volume (s2filera ----snapmirror-----> s1filerc (volume on this filer won't resize by the software)
-> thin provisioning is on (on source vol), auto-grow is off (on source vol), fs_fixed_size is on (on source vol)
Check the screenshot for more info
Thanks for your input

For the NMC documentation go here:
Click on the All Documents link for the version of OnCommand that you are using (NMC is a component of OnCommand). There are 2 main pieces to the Management Console - Performance Advisor and the Provisioning/Protection Manager. Sounds like you are interested in the latter so just scroll down to the Provisioning & Data Protection entry and you'll find the documentation.
