Tape backup and restore support between Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode and ONTAP

Contributors

You can restore data backed up from a storage system operating in 7-Mode or running ONTAP to a storage system either operating in 7-Mode or running ONTAP.

The following tape backup and restore operations are supported between Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode and ONTAP:

  • Backing up a 7-Mode volume to a tape drive connected to a storage system running ONTAP

  • Backing up an ONTAP volume to a tape drive connected to a 7-Mode system

  • Restoring backed-up data of a 7-Mode volume from a tape drive connected to a storage system running ONTAP

  • Restoring backed-up data of an ONTAP volume from a tape drive connected to a 7-Mode system

  • Restoring a 7-Mode volume to an ONTAP volume

    Note
    -   A 7-Mode LUN is restored as a LUN on an ONTAP volume.
    -   You should retain the ONTAP LUN identifiers when restoring a 7-Mode LUN to an existing ONTAP LUN.
  • Restoring an ONTAP volume to a 7-Mode volume

    Note

    An ONTAP LUN is restored as a regular file on a 7-Mode volume.
