Restore-NcSnapshotVolume from snapvault on a different,peered cluster

Hi,

I'm investigating how to use the PTK to restore a volume from a snapvault which resides on a different cluster. I have 3 clusters, all OnTAP 9.5p10

 

The protection relationships:

 

source -> mirror -> vault

 

In OnCommand, I can got to the destination volume and use the restore operation, which automatically selects the destination volume (aka, Restore From - where the snapshot resides)

I can then choose where to Restore To with Other Volume, selecting the peered Cluster I want to restore too, the peered storage virtual machine, the volume, the aggregate and finally the destination snapshot to restore.

(I've removed the details as this is just illustrating the operation)

 

The Restore-NcSnapshotVolume doesn't appear to have the capability to restore to, what could be considered a remote volume, which suggests it is only capable of restoring a snapshot residing on the source volume.

 

Is that correct and what would be involved in getting this kind of functionality into the PTK?

Hello,

 

You should be able to use this command: Invoke-NcSnapmirrorRestore

DESCRIPTION
Restore the contents of a selected Snapshot copy from the source volume to the active file system of the destination volume.

...

Use the command below for more details.

PS C:\>help Invoke-NcSnapmirrorRestore -full 

 

Thanks.
