Configuring a primary storage system for SnapVault

To back up a primary storage system to the SnapVault secondary storage system, you need to log in to the primary system’s console and enable SnapVault.

Steps

  1. Set up the SnapVault primary license on each primary storage system to be backed up. In the console, enter the following command: license add sv_primary_license
  2. Enable SnapVault on each primary storage system to be backed up. In the console, enter the following command: options snapvault.enable on
  3. Specify the name of the SnapVault secondary storage system. To do this, enter the following command:options snapvault.access host=snapvault_secondary
    The system must be able to resolve the host name (snapvault_secondary) to an IP address in the /etc/hosts file or else the system needs to be running DNS or NIS. You can also enter the IP address instead of the host name. For details, see the na_protocolaccess(8) man page. For more information about the options command, see the na_options(1) man page.
