Since you have not gotten an answer, you may want to ask this question in the NetApp Support Community. The current customers, partners and internal Subject Matter Experts are addressing technical product questions there.
as far as i know there is no sfr for the host package that i guess you are referring to.
the only way to sfr is to mount the backup to the vcenter and then add a vdisk to the virtual machine you want to restore it to.
single file restore is possible in protection manager though, but this is not integrated with vmware on an vmware object level. it works therefore only for shares and exports. ( cifs and nfs) not inside a vm ( i.e. ntfs)
hope that helps.
P.S. if you feel this post is useful, please KUDO or “accept as a solution" so other people may find it faster.
I am the product manager for Host Package and would like to make sure that everyone understands that the statement "OnCommand Host Package will receive no further development" is not accurate. We are committed in supporting Host Package along with OC UM 5.x. Primary focus of OC UM 5.x and HP 1.1 is management of 7-mode. Going forward we will be introducing OC UM 6.x for management of cluster mode. Our intention is to have similar level of functionality as that of HP in OC UM 6.x platform, though all of it may not be there in day one. OC UM 6.x has a different architecture from OC UM 5.x. We are trying to make the VM infrastructure discovery and management "agent-less" which means that there will not be a separate installable module like HP 1.1.
With regards to SFR, HP does not have similar level of functionality that there is in VSC for SFR.
That's good to hear, but is different to what I was told in case 2003016681 which suggested going back to VSC, and I quote "OC Host will only and that is slight only get break-fix patches and that is if it is only REALLY needed. There will be no further development of the OC Host."
