Data Backup and Recovery

can't import existing QSM relationships into protection manager 4.0.2


trying to import existing SM/SV relationships into an existing smsap dataset, the policy is set to BACKUP and Mirror (not chained).

All sources and destinations are set on qtrees, I was able to import  the QSV relationships into the dataset but when I try to import the "Mirrors" - the qsm - Protection Manager won't allow me to select them into the dataset.

I've read on the release notes that is not possible to import a Volume Snapmirror and a qtree snapmirror relationship into the same dataset if both sources are in the same volume, however this is not the case here as both sources are on qtrees.


Screenshots attached:




Any ideas?



HI Jorge,

mirror is only VSM. qsm is also a backup relationship.

So your policy must be backup and backup (if available) regardless of using sv or qsm.
