I have a question related to FlexClone licensing for Backup and Recovery feature when using DOT 8.1. The documentation says it is not necessary anymore.
I would like to know what changed?? Because in DOT 8.0 it was necessary when we need to temporary mount a backup, so the filer makes a FlexClone of that datastore and makes it available with another name... In DOT 8.1 how does it work without FlexClone license?
Thanks for help and sorry if I'm making confusion about this topic!
Data ONTAP 8.1.x added a new API that in effect is "flexclone lite" that only allows the clone operations to be generated by applications such as the VSC. It does not entitle the customer to have full blown access to FlexClone functionality.
