Configuration of backup using SnapCreator Framework with the XEN plugin.
I'm writing this so that it might help others avoid the same issues I have encountered. Not that I'm completely done but documenting the progress so far. If you have other configurations that work better then just add with a comment for reference.
The documentation is a little basic on how to use the XEN plugin.
Setup for reference.
Clustered ONTAP 8.3.2
SnapCreator 4.3 running on Windows 2012R2.
XEN administration installed on the same server as SnapCreator Framework. (xe.exe)
SnapVault to secondary site
For email this configuration worked. The issue was where the single apostrophes was placed. Fine post regarding email here: http://community.netapp.com/t5/Backup-and-Restore-Discussions/Sending-email-from-Snap-Creator-Windows-Server-how/td-p/31147
Still having an issue with unquiescing the VM's and getting the SnapVault update triggered without getting errors.
If you have info regarding getting this into a fool proof state pls enlight me.

But it seams it don´t discovers the Storage.
Error in XEN RPC call failed with following error
