Is there a way to force __recent suffix for SMVI with manual backup "smvi backup create"

vloiseau

Hi,

Imagine an external job scheduler which is launching "smvi backup create", recent snapshot names can't be suffixed with "__recent". Could it be possible with files smvi.config or smvi.override to force the recent snapshot to be suffixed with "__recent" with manual backup ?

Thanks.

Currently only jobs creted via the GUI have the _recent option available.

Is there a way to force a GUI based SMVI job to NOT USE "recent naming", but unique naming?

Or configure VSC 4.2 globally to not do recent snap naming at all?

Would be very helpful for cDOT 8.2/SnapVault Policies... Because in cDOT SnapVault policies (using snapmirror labels) do NOT work when the recent snap always has the same name...
