I checked and found that 8.3> smtape could be used only to backup to a tape and not usb. Is it possible to copy the data to an usb/external disk drive using an alternate method from FAS systems? The system is used solely as NAS
One thought is mount the volume on host and leverage the host side capability. Any view/suggestions would be appreciated.
Please bear in mind that this primarily can be used in testing purposes or to replicate baseline snapmirror transfer to a destination system in infrastructure with a pure connection between source and destination.
