Considerations for performing data protection

Contributors akseldavis

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 f3050-197-91 is the management path and f3050-220-91 is the data path.
