Backup of vFiler units using SnapVault

You can back up volumes and qtrees either from the default vFiler unit (vfiler0) or from nondefault vFiler units.

You must be aware of the following considerations when managing SnapVault volumes on the source or destination storage system:
Note: When performing SnapVault operations on a nondefault vFiler unit, you must ensure that the nondefault vFiler unit has a volume as the root storage resource. You must not have a qtree as the root storage resource. For more information, see the na_snapvault(1) man page.

You must license SnapVault on the source and destination storage systems before you use the SnapVault feature. Additonal SnapVault licenses are not required for vFiler units.
