LUN clones are typically replicated as complete LUNs on the destination system, because non-optimized transfers are used by default.
You must consider the following points before transferring the data in non-optimized mode:
- The backing Snapshot copy must be present on the source system.
- There is no space saving on the destination. The entire LUN clone, and all of the data from the backing LUN, is replicated to the destination.
- The destination qtree should not have LUN clones. If there are LUN clones on the destination qtree, the transfer fails. Before you perform the transfer again, you must delete the LUN clones.
Data restoration for qtrees with LUN clones
If the source qtree has LUN clones, SnapVault does not support in-place restores.
To recover data from the destination qtree using SnapVault
, you can use one of the following options for a qtree with LUN clones.
