How to configure a backup of aggr/volume/lun with snap ?

Re: How to take snap backup in netapp ?


All 3 of these can be configured in different ways.

You can create an aggregate snapshot via 'snap create -A <aggr_name> <snapshot-name>'

A volume snapshot can be created via 'snap create -V <vol_name> <snapshot_name>'

For a snapshot of a LUN, you could just create a snapshot of the volume containing the LUN.

But this would not be a consistent snapshot. To create a consistent snapshot of the LUN, you should use the snapdrive or snapmanager tools.

Kind regards
