SnapManager for SAP

Use Protection Manager to provision the new dataset


After the smsap_paydb dataset is created, the storage administrator uses Protection Manager to assign storage system resources to provision the dataset's Backup node.

What you'll need

Before provisioning the newly created dataset, the storage administrator confers with the DBA partner for the name of the dataset specified in the profile.

In this case, the dataset name is smsap_prod01.sample.com_P01.

  1. Go to Protection Manager's NetApp Management Console.

  2. From the menu bar, click Data > Datasets > Overview.

    The Datasets tab of the Datasets window displays a list of datasets that includes the dataset that was just created through SnapManager.

  3. Locate and select the smsap_prod01.sample.com_p01 dataset.

    When you select this dataset, the graph area displays the smsap_p01 dataset with its backup node unprovisioned. Its conformance status is flagged as nonconformant.

  4. With the smsap_p01 dataset still highlighted, click Edit.

    The Protection Manager's NetApp Management Console displays the Edit Dataset window for the smsap_prod01.sample.com_p01 dataset. The window's navigation pane displays configuration options for the dataset's primary node, backup connection, and backup node.

  5. From the navigation pane, locate the options for the dataset's backup node and select provisioning/resource pools.

    The Edit Dataset window displays a setting for default provisioning policy and a list of available resource pools.

  6. For this example, select the p01_backup_resource resource pool and click >.

    The selected resource pool is listed in the "Resource Pools for this node" field.

  7. Click Finish to save your changes.


The Protection Manager automatically provisions the secondary backup node with resources from the paydb_backup_resource resource pool.
