Sources and destinations of clones for Windows file systems

Contributors netapp-nsriram netapp-asubhas

You can clone a file system backup from primary storage or secondary storage. You also can choose the destination that supports your requirements; either the original backup location or a different destination on the same host or on a different host. The destination must be on the same volume as the clone source backup.

Clone destination Description

Original, source, location

By default, SnapCenter stores the clone on the same location and the same host as the backup being cloned.

Different location

You can store the clone on a different location on the same host or on a different host. The host must have a configured connection to the storage virtual machine (SVM).

You can rename the clone after the clone operation is complete.
