I'm trying to setup a backup policy that would let me vault my NFS datastores to a common volume in the destination FAS2040 so that I benefit of better deduplication.
After googling for a while, it looks like I should be able to setup snapvault relations manually, then import them into management console. I can do that for an empty dataset, but then I cannot setup VMware objects (because it is switched to Physical type), and vice-versa, If I create a vmware dataset first, then the relationship import wizard does not display that dataset as a valid destination
The only solution I found is to customize the dataset to set a static volume name in naming options, and set DFM as seen in https://communities.netapp.com/thread/17185 :
dfm option set dpMaxFanInRatio=4
Which is clearly not the best way to do it, I guess.
Any advice on the matter is welcome !
