How to make "business copy" on VA7100

I am trying to understand how could make business copy on VA7100 and how can I reclaim the space on it. I would really appreciate it if someone can give some examples.

Re: How to make "business copy" on VA7100

For the GUI... Let's see if I remember this correctly - I haven't a sample to look at now...

LUN Management tab, pick the "Business Copy" button. Press "Create". It asks then for the LUN to be copied, and a LUN number for the copy.

There's a delete button there, too.

Command line:

Use the "armcopy" command to create copies, and the armcfg command to delete them.

Documentation and examples are in the Command View book.

Good luck!

...you have to purchase the businesscopy license key first.

Enable the key with the armfeature command.
Not sure if you have enabled the key or not?
Check it with armfeature -r

Re: How to make "business copy" on VA7100

I found a very good document about the Business Copy VA. Thanks for your help. I think the steps are:
1) Create an empty business copy LUN;
2) Create a business copy LIUN;
3) Copy the parent LUN to a business copy LUN;
4) One can also copy the business copy LUN to parent lUN;
5) Periodically empty the business copy LUN to release the resources;
6) One can delete a business copy LUN if no longer needed.

I wish the document can be find in docs.hp.com, but I could not find any information there.
