i use VSC 6.1 with VMware vCenter Appliance 6U1 and Ontap 8.2.
I can create Backups but the snapvault relationship is not upgraded. i mean: i get a snapshot on node A but the existing snapvault relationship is not triggered, so i dont get the Snapshot to Node B.
In vSphere 5.1 and VSC 4.x i sued SV-SMVI Script to get it work. With the new VSC i thought i can do this without any externals scripts?
Can you tell me if i need to setuo SV-SMVI with VSC 6.1?
Or am i missing any settings? (Update Snapvault is set in the Backup Job)
i am not using SnapCenter..
Thanks for any help!

SnapVault is only supported for cDOT datastores in VSC 6.1 (this has been true ever since SnapVault support was first added to VSC 5.0). The SV-SMVI script supports SnapVault for 7-mode datastores, so I’m thinking that you are not yet using cDOT, which means that SnapVault is not supported. Both SMVI and NextGen BnR (SnapCenter plug-in) work only with cDOT based SnapVault.
