Volume restore using SnapVault overview

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

This content describes how to quickly restore a volume from a SnapVault backup in ONTAP when there is a data loss.

You should use this content if you want to restore from the SnapVault backup in the following way:

  • You are working with clusters running ONTAP 9.

  • You are a cluster administrator.

  • You have configured the SnapVault relationship following the procedure described in Volume backup using SnapVault

  • You do not want to perform a single file or LUN restore.

  • You want to use best practices, not explore every available option.

If these assumptions are not correct for your situation, or if you want more conceptual background information, you should see the following resources:
