I'm trying to help my customer to preserve his 5 years of weekly Snapshots (!). Many of them are 32-Bit an are not out of age in the near future. He wants/needs to turn to 8.3 due to a very dirty SMB Bug (currently on cDOT 8.2P3) and because we don't offer4 32-Bit Snapshots Capability in 8.3 I have the following in Mind: Install cDOT82-Sim in VMWare, SnapMirror all Data from current SnapVault-Destination into Sim to preserve it forever. Then delete 32-Bit Snaps on physical System and Upgrade Env to 8.3.
Capacity is around 6 TB. Can 8.2 cDOT Simulator handle this?
>> Bringing Data to Cloud is not an Option due to Person data, buying new Gear is also not an Option because they just bought new gear and are very unhappy about our Snapshot "Story"...
