Automate Dev and QA Oracle Database From Prod Snapshots?
2018-01-22 04:56 PM
Our prod Oracle DB is running on an older version of Solaris that we were unable to get snap manager working on, and I was wondering if there was an easy way to automate our dev and qa refresh from snapshots of the volumes housing the prod db luns. I have played with flexclone's for volumes a little bit using the PoSH netapp toolkit and I thought I would ask advice from the community on the best way to do my environment refreshes on the netapp utilizing snapshots.
In my head it would work like:
Delete the exising dev volume
Create a flexclone lun from prod
Use the Flexclone lun as the new Dev volume
That may be simplifying it a bit, but this would involve my Solaris guys rescanning for the new luns. I was hoping you guys may know a better more streamlined way to do this.
