I have been reading a lot of posts and ONTAP documentation but still confused as to how this should be setup.
Requirement is to have snapshots as below.
Source: every 4hr for 2 days daily for 7 days weekly for 4 weeks
Destination: daily 30 days weekly 8 monthly 12 yearly 7
I have followed the Snapvault express guide to set this up on a test volume but still not clear and can't get it to work as expected. The step are
1. create a new vol on destination 2. create a new schedule on destination ( use default daily to run overnight) 3. create snapshot policy on source and apply to source vol 4. create a snapvault policy on destination. 5. create the snapvault relationship on destination
What is confusing me is step 3 and 4.
I have created the snapshot policy in step 3 on the cluster level, does this have to be on the svm level ??, do I add the local schedules and the destination schedules to this same policy ?? As we don't want to keep monthly or yearly on the primary I set the retention to 0 ( or should this be 1 ??)
