Considerations for performing data protection
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You must be aware of certain considerations for performing data protection.
To perform clone or restore operations from secondary systems, you must mount the destination volume in the namespace and export it properly.
You must disable the SnapDrive configuration parameter check-export-permission-nfs-clone by setting the value to off.
The SnapDrive for UNIX documentation on the NetApp Support Site contains additional information about the check-export-permission-nfs-clone parameter.
You must configure the SnapMirror relationship for the requested secondary storage volumes in the secondary storage system.
You must configure the SnapVault relationship for the requested secondary storage qtrees in the secondary storage system for Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode.
You must define a policy and rules for the user-defined SnapMirror label if you are using SnapVault post-script for clustered Data ONTAP.
SnapVault post-script supports clustered Data ONTAP volumes and the SnapMirror relation types DP and XDP. The ONTAP documentation on the NetApp Support Site contains information about configuring SnapMirror and SnapVault.
In NAS environments, you must configure the primary and secondary NAS data path by using the snapdrive config set-mgmtpathmanagement_pathmanagement_pathmanagement_pathdatapath_path command.
For example, snapdrive config set -mgmtpath f3050-197-91 f3050-197-91 f3050-197-91 f3050-220-91, where
f3050-197-91is the management path and
f3050-220-91is the data path.
