Netapp Copying Data from Snapmirror Volume to a Tape Device and retrieving from Tapes to Snapmirror volume


FAS01> snapmirror store source_volume dest_tapedevices

g dest_disk_geom applies if the disk geometry of the destination
volume,is different from the disk geometry of the source volume. If they are different, use the -g parameter to
specify the destination volume disk geometry, for example:
-g 140000x10,7000x10

source_volume is the volume you are copying.

dest_tapedevices is a comma-separated list of tape devices to which you are copying the volume.

Result: SnapMirror starts transferring data to tape. This command creates a baseline transfer. If you have to use more than one tape,SnapMirror prompts you for another tape.

If SnapMirror prompts you for another tape, add another tape to the

drive, and continue transfer of data to tape by entering the following command:

FAS01> snapmirror use dest_tapedevices tape_drive

dest_tapedevices is the tape device or a comma-separated list of tape devices to which you are copying the volume.
tape_drive is the drive holding the new tape you supplied.

To initialise Snapmirror destination via local tape :

1.Create volume on destination filer.Put the volume into restricted state.

2.Load the tape (made with snapmirror store) into the destination filer's local tape device.

3.use the command:

FAS01> snapmirror retrieve dest_volume tape_drive

dest_volume is the volume that you are initializing.

tape_drive is a tape device or a comma-separated list of devices from

which you are restoring the volume.

Result: SnapMirror starts transferring data from the tape.

4.If Data ONTAP prompts you for another tape, add the next tape to

the drive and restart the initialization by entering the following

command:

FAS01> snapmirror use volume tape_list

volume is the volume to which you are restoring.

tape_list is the tape device from which you are restoring the volume.
