SnapCenter SQL option to ignore offline databases?

Mikkel_Kjaer

Hi everyone

 

Problem description

 

I have deployed SnapCenter in an environment with several hundred SQL databases. On a regular basis databases (not instances) are deliberately taken offline for various resons.

 

When a SnapCenter backup job encounters an offline databases it generates a warning accompanied by the following error message:

 

SQL Databases ({DB-name}) is not on NetApp storage or in an invalid state

 

Question

 

Is there any way of making SnapCenter ignore (or omit producing a warning) when encountering an offline database? An option to mark specific databases to be ignored would be preferrable.

 

As a workaround I could individually select all databases separately. However, having a dynamic environment where databases are added/remove on a regular basis this would be almost impossible to maintain.

 

 

Environment

 

SnapCenter 3.0.1 (server & plug-ins)

ONTAP 9.1

Hi

 

unfortunately there is no such an option at this stage.

RFE: SnapCenter should allow full instance backup with database exclusion list on database plugins

Hi matte

 

Thank you for the update.

 

I'm subscribing the bug/RFE. Christmas being right around the corner I'm feeling confident we will see this functionality implemented soon 🙂
