When you back up a source volume using SnapVault, the volume is backed up to a qtree on the secondary system; therefore, any qtrees in the source volume become directories in the destination qtree.
Limitations to backing up a volume to a qtree
Quota information from the qtrees in the source volume is not saved when they are replicated as directories in the destination qtree.
If the qtrees in the source volume had different qtree security styles, those security styles are lost in the replication to the destination qtree and are replaced by the security style of the volume.
SnapVault cannot restore the data back to a volume. When restoring data, the original source volume is restored as a qtree. Also, incremental restores are not supported.
SnapVault volume limits are subject to the volume limits supported by WAFL. For information about WAFL volume limits on the SnapVault secondary system, see the Data ONTAP Storage Management Guide for 7-Mode.
