Simulator Discussions

snapvault between 2 Simulators


Our Customer setup snapvault using 2 ONTAP simulators running NetApp Release 8.1.1X34 7-Mode.

Initial baseline worked as expected.

Next a file was deleted on the Primary.

After the next incremental transfer the file also was missing on the Secondary in every snapshot.

Is this a bug in the Simulator?



Tech Report 3487 (example):

If SnapVault backed up a 100GB data set for the first time, it would consume 100GB of disk

space on the SnapVault secondary. Over the course of several hours, users change 10GB of data (not files)

on the primary file system. When the next SnapVault backup occurs, SnapVault writes the 10GB of changes

to the SnapVault secondary and creates a new Snapshot copy. At this point, the SnapVault secondary

contains two Snapshot copies. One contains an image of the file system as it appeared when the baseline

backup occurred, and the other contains an image of the file system as it appeared when the incremental

backup occurred.
