What data gets backed up and restored through SnapVault

The data structures that are backed up and restored through SnapVault depend on the primary system.

The destination system uses a slightly more disk space and directories than the source system.

Note: You can back up the qtrees from multiple primary systems, or directories from multiple open systems storage platforms, to associated qtrees on a single SnapVault secondary volume.

The following illustration shows the backup of qtrees and directories on different systems to a single secondary volume:

Note: Starting with Data ONTAP 7.3.2, SnapVault does not support the use of source Snapshot copies created by releases prior to Data ONTAP 6.5.
