Same cluster for Source & Auxiliary copies in CommVault IntelliSnap?

Hi,

 

Got a quick question. I have a 2-node swtichless cluster configured with 1 SVM, serving LUNs to a DB server. I have snapshots configured for the DB via Commvault IntelliSnap creating my primary copies. I would like to configure Auxiliary copies (snapvault) for this system. Is it possible to just create a second SVM in the same cluster and set it up as the target for the Auxiliary copies? Or must the auxiliary copies reside on a separate cluster?

Absolutely.

You even can replicate to the same SVM if needed.

 

You can use Express Guides here.

 

In short:

 

  1. You need to establish cluster peer (if you have two separate clusters)
  2. Establish SVM peer (if you have two separate SVMs)
  3. Configure volume replication & schedule
  4. Start initial base line replication transfer
