Examples of how to update the Snapshot copy on the secondary system

The following examples show how to update the Snapshot copy on the secondary system.

Example 1

systemB> snapvault update /vol/vol2/qtree3

SnapVault updates the qtree on the secondary system (systemB) with the data from a new Snapshot copy of the qtree it creates on the primary system (systemA). You do not have to specify where the primary system data is, because you already did so when you set up the SnapVault relationship using the snapvault start command.

Example 2

To update qtree3 on the secondary system (systemB) with a particular Snapshot copy of qtree3 on the primary system (systemA), you would use the -s option to specify the Snapshot copy on the primary system, as in the following example.

systemB> snapvault update -s my_snap systemB:/vol/vol0/qtree3
SnapVault updates the qtree on the secondary system (systemB) with the data from a Snapshot copy of qtree3 (my_snap) that you created earlier on the primary system (systemA).
Note: The snapvault update command does not create a new Snapshot copy on the secondary system. You need to use the snapvault snap create command if you want to create a new Snapshot copy on the secondary system.
