How can I run parallel command on my Storage system


Hi All,


I have a requirement where I haveto refresh some QA environments from my production data... This task requires creating snapshots on the volume, creating flexclone and then mapping the luns to the initiator group.


My query is whether I can run these command like taking snapshot or creating flexclone parallely on multiple volumes on the same storage system to get my work done faster.


I have been doing it via a script but the commands run in a sequence... I have tried firing the commands from multiple sessions... it takes almost the same time nd sometimes even the command fails.


Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.







Imran -


I'm guessing your script is passing command lines over shh or rsh ?


You may wish to try using API calls instead.


See the Data ONTAP Software Development Kit, or the Powershell Toolkit for Windows.
