If you are using SnapVault with Data ONTAP Edge systems installed with the Value bundle, you need to be aware of a few limitations.
Note: These limitations and considerations do not apply to Data ONTAP Edge systems installed with the Premium bundle because those systems can function as a both a SnapVault primary or as a SnapVault secondary.
Consider the following when using SnapVault on Data ONTAP Edge
storage systems with the Value bundle:
- These systems can be configured only as a SnapVault primary system, not as a SnapVault secondary system.
- SnapVault primary is supported only when paired with a NetApp storage system configured as a SnapVault secondary system.
- After you start Data ONTAP Edge the first time, you must establish a connection to the SnapVault secondary system within 72 hours or the system will be shut down.
See the Data ONTAP Edge Installation and Administration Guide for more information about Data ONTAP Edge storage systems.
