I'm trying to find a clever way to be able to utilize Snapvault with our C-Mode Clusters, and our VSC 4.2.1 install. We can't move to 5 because of our linked environment, and I will not be able to convince our VMWare Admins to switch.
My initial idea was to just have VSC do its normally scheduled backup, then followed by a scheduled Snapvault update, but I believe I have ran into an issue where I need to have the snapmirror-label applied to the source.
Am I looking at this wrong?
Is there a way to have snapvault in C-Mode not require that label to be populated?
Is there some setting I can apply to VSC to make all smvi snapshots have that tag applied?
Has someone already created a VSC script to perform the label change, and would like to share that?
Or for the best case, when is VSC 5 going to support linked VMWare environments?
Yes, this is definitely pointing me in the right direction. Although, I do notice that the STORAGE_SNAPSHOT.* variables are unexpectedly putting the "/vol/" in front of the C-Mode volumes, and I am having to replace that text in my powershell script.
I have another additional question/issue. In our current VMWare environment, we have a mix of 7-Mode filers(N-Series) and C-Mode boxes. Is there a powershell query I can run to determine if the 'filer' is C-Mode or 7-Mode? Then use the results to determine which way to do the backup.
