SnapVault SVM-DR destination volumes

Hi,

 

Is it possible to SnapVault a SVM-DR destination volume?

 

SVM-DR:SourceVol ==> SVM:DestVol[SV:SourceVol] ==> SnapVault:DestVol

 

I can't find a definitive statement in the documentation.

 

Thanks

SVM-DR does not support cascade snapmirror so it would not work for your scenario.

Yep, that's a SnapMirror mirror-vault cascade deployment. Here is the documentation,  Fan-out and cascade data protection deployments

 

Also see, Ensure a common Snapshot copy in a mirror-vault deployment and About SnapMirror SVM replication

Thanks for the reply, though there is nothing in that article mentioning SVM-DR cascades. In fact, one of the articles seems to suggest that you can't cascade from a SVM-DR destination:

Have you actually configured a SVM-DR cascade or are you just working from the documentation?

 

Anyone form NetApp monitoring these forums?

 

Thanks

@mgmt-gateway , 

 

If you use identity-preserve false, you can start the destination SVM (from your SVM-DR solution) and then you can use SnapMirror to vault the individual FlexVol volumes to a tertiary site or take local Snapshot copies of the individual FlexVol volumes in the SVM. 

 

Source =======================>Dest1==================>Dest2

                        SVM-DR                                                        SnapMirror

          (-identity preserve false)                                          (vault)

 

You cannot create a cascade SVM-DR like this:

 

Source ==============>Dest1============>Dest2

                        SVM-DR                              SVM-DR

Thanks

@ansley_tj , thanks that's a useful option - where is that buried in the documentation please?
