Two clones to the same Linux host


Is it possible to use SnapCreator to clone a DB twice to the same destination host. I tried this over the weekend and when I did the second clone it wiped out the disks from the first clone. I did a vgrename on the volume group but apparently it had issues witht eh physical volumes being duplicates. What am I missing?



SC doesn't do anything with the host so certainly SC can create multiple clones and present them to the host. The question is more about how the host handles this and what is required? I unfortunately cant provide help there but from SC perspective yes this is possible but as you found the issue is the host may see the disks as duplicates.
