NetApp Developer Session - DB Backup Workflow with LUN Postprocessing

Thanks to Arda who outlined a database backup workflow with a decent LUN postprocessing. Why? The environment he dealt with interpretes a cloned LUN with a different ID as a new device and forces a time intensive scan operation. Thus he cloned the database and adjusted the LUN to make sure this scan process is not performed and a clone of this DB can be started without delays. The samples in this sessions make use of NMSDK and Perl to implement this automation.
