Migrating from SnapManager for Microsoft SQL Server to SnapCenter

If you are coming to SnapCenter from NetApp SnapManager for Microsoft SQL Server, you can use the migration feature to move your existing backup jobs to SnapCenter. After you migrate these jobs, you can run them in SnapCenter the same way you run jobs created with a SnapCenter plug-in.

Migration interrogates the metadata for SnapManager for Microsoft SQL Server backup jobs and translates it into a form understandable by SnapCenter. SnapCentergenerates datasets for the database resources identified in the jobs and attaches policies to the datasets based on the job schedule, retention criteria, replication settings, and so on.
