Data Backup and Recovery Discussions
I am just wondering if Snapcreator supports NFS volumes exported with -actual flag?
It does work with snapshots and snap restore.
But if i make a clone it creates the new export not using -actual flag but the volumename.
any workaround for this?
See The Solution
The export options for SC are as follows
NTAP_NFS_EXPORT_HOST - hostname
NTAP_NFS_EXPORT_ACCESS - read-write, read-only, root
NTAP_NFS_EXPORT_PERSISTENT - Y|N to make add export to exports file
You can only export clone to one host at this point and only flag we set is if it is persistent or not.
If this doesnt work the only workaround would be to run a POST command and login to filer / do the export with CMD or script
Why do you need this flag? What does it do?
We are installing at a customer site (big company).
Their storage group have one naming standard and their SAP group have another.
So we accomodated both by using the -actual flag for the nfs exports.
In the example /vol/vol01/qtree01 is the name on the filer and /vol/sapvol01/saplogs is a "fake" name for the nfs export.
Yeah we currently dont support this. We export using the name of the /vol/<volume>/<qtree>
I will take this up with dev team and see if we can add this in the future
Great idea / feedback!
