You can create a SnapVault relationship using the Volume / Health details page so that data backups are enabled for protection purposes on volumes.
What you'll need
You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.
You must have set up Workflow Automation to perform this task.
The Protect menu does not display in the following instances:
If RBAC settings do not allow this action: for example, if you have only operator privileges
When the volume ID is unknown: for example, when you have an intercluster relationship and the destination cluster has not yet been discovered
In the Protection tab of the Volume / Health details page, right-click a volume in the topology view that you want to protect.
Select Protect > SnapVault from the menu.
The Configure Protection dialog box is launched.
Click SnapVault to view the SnapVault tab and to configure the secondary resource information.
Click Advanced to set deduplication, compression, autogrow, and space guarantee as needed, and then click Apply.
Complete the Destination Information area and the Relationship Settings area in the Configure Protection dialog box.
You are returned to the Volume / Health details page.
Click the protection configuration job link at the top of the Volume / Health details page.
The Job details page is displayed.
Click Refresh to update the tasks list and task details associated with the protection configuration job and to determine when the job is complete.
When the job tasks are complete, the new relationships are displayed in the Volume / Health details page topology view.
