Connecting to a Snapshot copy
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You can connect a Snapshot copy from one host to a different host.
SnapDrive for UNIX lets you connect a host to a Snapshot copy from a different location on a host. This new location can be on the host where you took the Snapshot copy (the originating host) or on a different host (the non-originating host).
Being able to set up the Snapshot copies in a new location means you can back up a Snapshot copy to another medium, perform maintenance on a disk group, or access the Snapshot copy data without disrupting the original copy of the data.
With this command, you can connect a host to a Snapshot copy that contains any of the following:
A file system created directly on a LUN
Disk groups, host volumes, and file systems created on LUNs
NFS directory trees
Disk groups, host volumes, and file systems on shared storage system
