You might want to schedule some Snapshot copies on the secondary storage system that do not require a transfer from the primary storage system. For example, you might want to maintain hourly and nightly Snapshot copies on the primary storage system and you might want to keep only weekly Snapshot copies on the secondary storage system.
- To schedule Snapshot copies on the secondary storage system without having to create a corresponding Snapshot copy on the primary storage system, enter the following command: snapvault snap sched sec_vol snap_name schedule_spec
Note: The snapvault snap sched command is used because it waits for any active SnapVault transfers to finish before creating the Snapshot copy.
The following command schedules a weekly Snapshot copy at 11 p.m. on Saturdays and keeps the last five Snapshot copies: snapvault snap sched vol2 sv_weekly 5@sat@22
