Data Backup and Recovery

snapmirror and snapvault on the same source volume to point to the same destination volume?


Can I set up a snapmirror and snapvault of the same source volume to point to the same destination volume?


I am on CDOT 8.3x and the literature seems to imply that this is possible but there is no discussion of HOW.


I have 80xx series filers and the first volume I want to protect this way is an NFS CIFS volume.



I do not have snapmanager or any snapcenter clients installed as of yet


Thank you.





There is a policy named mirror-vault that you can use. but these are not two independent relationships.

That is perfectly fine.  I want DR recoverability and archival recoverability of that volume.  (My tape backup solution has started corrupting .bak files for some reason.)


So I would create a snapmirror and apply the mirror-vault policy to it?
