I'm researching the possibility of using Snap Creator 4.0.0 to automate Oracle backups in a secure multi-tenant design with Clustered ONTAP 8.2. Each customer will have VLAN tagged Vservers and will only be able to connect to their Vserver and will not be able to connect to the Cluster Management Vserver.
I'm reading through the Snap Creator Framework 4.0.0 Installation and Administration Guide and became concerned when I read this on page 18:
Creating a Snap Creator user for clustered Data ONTAP
Clustered Data ONTAP requires creation of two users on the clustered Data ONTAP system—a cluster user and a virtual storage server (vserver) user. Both users require the HTTP, ONTAPI library, and Secure Shell (SSH) applications.
This leads me to believe that each Snap Creator Server will need to connect to the Cluster Management Vserver and this would make it necessary to open up a route and firewall rules to allow connections form every customer VLAN to the Cluster Management Vserver.
Please let me know if there is some way to make use of Snap Creator Framework to automate Oracle backups without changing a typical secure multi-tenant design.
Thanks in advance,
