I'm working on backing up a collection of NDMP volumes on a Netapp
filer using NDMP and controlled by Commvault 9sp5b but I have a
specific need to do the backup based on a specific named snapshot.
The idea is that I snapshot two or more volumes at the same time, then
backup the snapshots sequentially using NDMP. Is this possible? I've
been looking over the docs, and I can certainly write a pre/post
script to create and cleanup the snapshots without any problems.
Has anyone got this working? The online docs are NOT clear about how
this would be done. My other option would be to have a pre-script
which just creates a flex clone volume of the source volumes, and then
backs up each of those volumes. Uglier, but might be the only option
My volumes are a mix of FC Luns and NFS data. I already know that I
can snapshot the luns and access the data via the snapshot without a
problem, so restores should be just fine. A bit manual, but easy
enough to do.
Any hints, gotchas or suggestions?
