SMVI 2.0?

I am about to deploy SMVI 2.0 on my production network. I have been reading the SnapManager 2.0 for Virtual Infrastructure Installation and Administration Guide as well as this guide:

SnapManager 1.0 for Virtual Infrastructure Best Practices

http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3737.pdf

The above guide is a bit out of date since it covers SMVI version 1.0 and I am deploying version 2.0. Two questions:

1. Will the above best practices guide be updated soon?

2. I am most intersted in the content on page 9 of this guide which talks about the configuration of SMVI if the software itself is installed in a virtual machine. My VMWare Virtual Center runs as a VM so I will be installing SMVI 2.0 on a VM. I did not know if this section of the guide still pertains to SMVI 2.0

Re: SMVI 2.0?

1. The Best Practice Guide for smvi 2.0 is already written and under review process.

2. You can still install SMVI on VM as smvi 1.0.

Re: SMVI 2.0?

Hi,

I am in the process of writing the BPG and the SMVI 2.0 BPG will be available in January. There are no changes being made to the section in which vCenter will be on a VM.

Re: SMVI 2.0?

Hi Amrita,

Do you have any idea how can i do integration of SMVI and its snapvault backup with protection manager.

At least allows me to monitor the status and send alerts on lag time ?

I have found a couple of scripts around, but using those scripts i must install perl on the DFM server as well right ?

Hi Hong,

We have this SnapVault integration script available

http://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-8720#comment-4670

Take a look.

Re: SMVI 2.0?

Hi Amrita,

That is only integration between snapvault and SMVI right ?

Is there any integration between these and protection manager, for it to be monitor ?

Thanks and Regards,

Chua Hong Wee

Re: SMVI 2.0?

It’s part of our roadmap to have that. But currently the script will only be used for SnapVault integration.
