Many OSSV relationships into One Volume - Protection Manger Schedules


Hello, looking for some advice

I am setting up multiple OSSV relationships on different servers and pointing them to a single volume on my netapp system. they are broken down by Qtree. is this good practice or should I have one volume per OSSV relationship?

My concern / question is regarding a protection manager schedule.

From what I can see the schedule for OSSV relationship kicks off a backup for ALL Qtrees in the volume. is that right?

Would I need to have a dataset for all the Qtrees in the volume or just one as the scheuldle is per volume and seems to run a backup for all those Qtrees.

Any advice appreciated




I think I might have answered by own question. When I created a new dataset in UM and tried to import the external relationship I got this

It seems although the QTREE's are seperate a volume can only be in a single dataset?

So back to the original qn. Can I control all the various OSSV > netapp Qtree backups in a single dataset or should I be creating new volumes for each OSSV relationship?
