SnapMirror-to-Tape license requirement?

We are using TSM v6.2 with NDMP to backup our N-series 6040 metrocluster (Ontap 7.3.3p3).

I'm starting to consider if we should move to SM2T instead, but I can't find any reference to license requirements on Ontap side.

Is there any license requirement I should be aware of?

We don't have any snapmirror/snapvault license today.


Re: SnapMirror-to-Tape license requirement?

A SnapMirror license is not required to do SM2T. You can do a snapmirror store/use/retrieve without the SnapMirror license being enabled on the system.

Nice, then it is definitly something to consider closer.

Could you decribe your environment? Do you also use TSM or another backup software?
