how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

PINYOUUDK

As we know that in snap creator document mention about how enable OSSV and i try to follow document by set NTAP_OSSV_ENABLE=Y, NTAP_OSSV_HOMEDIR=/usr/snapvault. The OSSV relation already setup and initial baseline. but i didn't see any update data from OSSV relation whenever perform OSSV action in snap creator. What task i still not? or way to check?

Probably a configuration issue, format of VOLUMES is I am guessing issue.

1) please share your config file settings

2) ensure you have agent running and are using agent

3) ensure you have SC 3.5 or 3.6

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

ktenzer

Yep as I suspected VOLUMES is incorrect

You should only ever have primary volumes listed in SC config, never secondary volume for anything

Make following changes:

VOLUMES=linuxom:/boot

NTAP_USERS=Padma:pinyo/password

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

PINYOUUDK

Thanks Keith, you are right after i change as your mention. i fixed on linux.

anyway, how about in windows environment? if i want to set parameters VOLUMES for the path "WINDOWSCLI01

:C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Domino"

i already set base line as below

C:\Program Files\netapp\snapvault\bin>snapvault status
Snapvault primary is ON
Source                                          Destination                   State   Lag       Status
WINDOWSCLI01:C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Domino  Rowena:/vol/ossv_scg/Domino   Source  00:18:09  Idle

C:\Program Files\netapp\snapvault\bin>

but when perform OSSV action, it still show [scf-00026] No Snapvault Relationship

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

jakob_bena

hello,

how can i set in the snap creator gui, schedules, under the point action "ossv". my only choice is snap, clone_lun or clone_vol.

regards

jakob

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

ktenzer

We only allow the three actions snap, vol_clone, or lun_clone to be scheduled.

Until we add more actions only thing you can do is not use SC scheduler for these or you can trick it. You could create a config and disable everything so no snapshot, etc. Then as APP_QUIESCE_CMD01 or any CMD really you could run SC with ossv as action. This requires two configs but would be a workaround.

I will ping dev and see what deal is and why we cant get more actions into scheduler

Keith

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

jakob_bena

thaks for your fast reply,

with two configuration it works.

regards

jakob

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

ktenzer

In addition I filed a bug with engineering so we will get this fixed soon so you can schedule ossv tasks

Sorry about that but glad workaround works

Keith

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

jakob_bena

an other point maybe is, if you try to configure a backup. there is no way to choose a server. you have to add first a filer for volumes and change your config via editor.

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

ktenzer

What do you mean choose a server? Just want to make sure I capture this correctly

Keith

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

jakob_bena

sorry for my late response.

if i make a new backup configuration, i have to setup first a source location. in a second step i can choose a snapvault/snapmirror destination.

the source location must be a netapp system, i can't choose a ossv server.

regards

jakob

Re: how OSSV configuration work on Snap Creator?

ktenzer

Got it

Yeah OSSV is not possible to configure using wizzard you have to do it by hand

I think we can definitely add ability to add agent in future. So idea is SC will discover its agents and then if you have agent you can select it and we will do snapvault status through agent and then you can select a snapvault relationship.

I know we arent there yet but this would be possible in future
