how to use config restore on 7mod

serge_vigier

Hi

 

I want to make a test for restoring a configuration after a DR on 7-MOD

 

For my test 

i create a new vol and qtree with NFS exports

i make a backup with config dump <conf_file>

 

i delete the vol

 

I try to restore the conf with config restore <conf_file>

Nothing happens  ( my vol is not beeing appears)

 

i make a takeover/giveback

 

Nothing has changed , my vol is not  beeing appears

 

 

Somebody can help me ?

restoring the config file will not get your volume back after you deleted it. For that, you'll need a DR backup (snapmirror). You can also restore a volume from an aggregate snapshot. However, that would require restoring the entire aggregate (or copy the aggregate and then restore the specific volume from the aggr snapshot)

ok 

so how works the config restore ?
