Scanning on-premises ONTAP data with Cloud Compliance by using SnapMirror

Contributors netapp-tonacki netapp-bcammett Download PDF of this page

You can scan your on-premises ONTAP data with Cloud Compliance by replicating the on-prem NFS or CIFS data to a Cloud Volumes ONTAP working environment and then enabling compliance. Scanning the data directly from an on-premises ONTAP working environment isn’t supported.

Steps
  1. From Cloud Manager, create a SnapMirror relationship between the on-premises ONTAP cluster and Cloud Volumes ONTAP.

  2. For DP volumes that were created from SMB source volumes, from the ONTAP CLI, configure the SMB destination volumes for data access. (This is not required for NFS volumes because data access is enabled automatically through Cloud Compliance.)

  3. From Cloud Manager, activate Cloud Compliance on the Cloud Volumes ONTAP working environment that contains the SnapMirror data:

    1. Click Working Environments.

    2. Select the working environment that contains the SnapMirror data and click Enable Compliance.

    3. Click the Enable Access to DP volumes button at the top of the Scan Configuration page.

    4. Activate each DP volume that you want to scan, or use the Activate Compliance for all Volumes control to enable all volumes, including all DP volumes.

See Scanning data protection volumes for more information about scanning DP volumes.
