we are implementing a new netapp infrastructure. This infrastructure will be composed by 2 clusters with SM-BC -- Snapmirror Business Continuity
We will use it to present luns on vmware
I don’t find any information about the compatibility with intellisnap.
Any Idea ?
Thanks a lot
Good afternoon. For clarity, is this an active-active configuration and do the nodes share the same hostname?
it’s 2 different clusters with 1 dedicated hostname per cluster
Since this is using SM, I believe you would be protecting only primary side.
The configuration would differ if you would like to NAS IntelliSnap(Backing up NetApp volumes), VM IntelliSnap(DataStores/VM’s) or App-Aware IntelliSnap(VM Applications).
yes, in case of failover on the second cluster, i can’t reuse the same relationship
i have to recreate a new one with the new path
then to summarize, i will be able to use intellisnap on the primary side but in case of failure, i have to recreate a new subclient
For protecting NAS volumes, ONTAP and CV version compatibility should be enough.
