Unified Manager and restore on original location

Hi All,

 

We have new controllers in 9.5 (call them cluster A) , with volume snapvaulted on controllers in 9.4 (callt hem cluster B)

We are using Unified Manager in 7.3P1 to restore data. The problem we have is that, when trying to restore datas from the snapvaulted location - cluster B, we are unable to restore them to original location on cluster A, because options is greyed (please see below) So we have to restore to an alternate location. Not that if we want to restore datas from snapshots of cluster A, we can restore to the original location.

Before, in 7 mode with the Old Netapp management console, it was possible. Is this a feature that disappeared ? I cannot find a note in the ocum documentation about this.

 

Thans for your help,

Re: Unified Manager and restore on original location

Hi,

 

According to this NetApp KB:1030566, there are only 3 options with OCUM 6.3 and later:

 

1) Restore a file from the primary snapshot to the original location
2) Restore a file from the primary snapshot to an alternate location
3) Restore a file from the secondary snapshot to an alternate location [In your case]


Restore method : NDMP

 

Thanks,
