AltaVault and local cluster Snapmirror
2019-03-08 09:23 AM
Can I set up a snapmirror relation between Alatvault and the OnTap cluster, and I can control what snapshots should be moved to Altault and what should be staying in the cluster? the same as I can do between a local cluster and remote cluster?

Yes, you can setup snapmirror between Ontap CLuster and Altavault.
Please refer document https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMLP2841532 Page 50.
for more details on setup and configuration details you can reachout support.
this is not what I am asking.
I know i can do snapmirror between FAS cluster and Altavault. I am asking if we can do snapshot version control type of snapmirror between these two. Which means selectively snapmirror snapshots over to Altavault?
Hi @netappmagic ,
"Which means selectively snapmirror snapshots over to Altavault?"
snapmirror snapshots refered here is the snaphsot created using snapshot policy ?
Netapp unified replication(XDP) is used for replication from Ontap to Altvault.
Snapshots created on source volume using "snapshot policy" with snapmirror lables Can be controlled /transfered to Altvault using rules (snapmirror labels) specified in the "snapmirror policy" assinged to the relation .
Snapshot policy and Snapmirror policy should be created on source Ontap Controller.
Hi @netappmagic ,
Altavault supports only SnapMirror policy type "vault" with SnapMirror relation type "XDP".
Version flexible SnapMirror with SnapMirror policy type "async-mirror or mirror-vault" is not supported by altavault.
please refer attached document "The AltaVault SnapMirror deployment guide" for step by step configuration details.
