I'm working on a workflow to protect/failover Vserver, so far it works fine with basic volume options.
But I want to duplicate source volume properties like unix_permissions and security_style for example, and I have two problems with that :
- Unix permissions not cached
Since this attribute is not cached, I can't apply it to my DR volume (i.e. SourceVolume.unix_permissions returns null)
I tried changing the data source entry but basically, it looks like I need to create a whole new datasource with a custom scheme because it wouldn't let me change cm_storage
Is there a workaround to this ?
I cannot apply that property to my new volume either because it looks like it is NULL, despite the fact it appears as UNIX in the UI
Thanks for your help ! I'm getting close to have a usable DR solution for Vserver :
- Create DR vserver
- Create volumes and mirrors
- Failover vServer
- Break mirror
- Mount volumes
