Network and Storage Protocols
We have SnapMirror relationships for all our NFS volumes(datastores) to our DR site. Now we have SRM. I know that NFS support is relatively new in SRM.
I am reading the SRM manual and it says this:
"You must identify a datastore that SRM will use to store placehold virtual machines."
Is this separate from the SnapMirror volume that we can mount to our DR site's VM environment?
Does anyone have a good instructions for setting up SRM and Netapp NFS volumes(datastores)?
Datastore for placeholders should not be replicated - it is a local datastore at DR site only (you may need one at Primary as well if you reverse the protection relationship).

Thank you, I will check that out.
