Snapdrive for Unix 5.3 and CDOT 8.3.1P1.
We are currently using Snapdrive to create lunclones.
Is it possible to use Snapdrive to create file clones?
Below is command to clone a filesystem (Lun) which has application consistent snapshots:
I have used Snapshot snap2 which contains application consistent Snapshots of /mnt/fs1 and /mnt/fs2 for snap connect.
# snapdrive snap connect -fs /mnt/fs_1 -fs /mnt/fs_2 -snapname homer:/vol/vol1:snap2 -autorename -clone unrestricted
connecting /mnt/fs_1:creating unrestricted volume clone homer:/vol/Snapdrive_vol1_volume_clone_from_snap2_snapshot ... successmapping new lun(s) ... doneconnecting /mnt/fs_2:mapping new lun(s) ... donediscovering new lun(s) ... doneSuccessfully connected to snapshot homer:/vol/vol1:snap2file system: /mnt/fs_1_0file system: /mnt/fs_2_0
Here, SnapDrive for UNIX has created a single unrestricted FlexClone Snapdrive_vol1_0_volume_clone_from_snap2_Snapshot from Snapshot snap2.
This is then connected to LUN to create a cloned host file system /mnt/fs1_0 and /mnt/fs2_0 respectively.
