EVA 8100 snapcopy space

I would like to reserve several TB for onlly snapcopy space and never allow the space to be consumed by production or developement storage needs outside of snapcopy.

I understand that a snapcopy by design must be written to disks within the same disk group. If I only have one disk group, is there a way to reserve the snapcopy space?

Hi,
In a word - no.
Any space in a disk group that has not been used is free to create whatever you have capacity and a licence for.
To stop people using the space, do not give them access to CV and then they will not be able to create any Vdisks, etc!

A SnapSHOT must by design must be written to disks within the same disk group. A SnapCLONE may be written to any disk group with sufficient space.

You can "reserve" space in a disk group by creating Containers which are then used when creating/refreshing SnapClones. When done with the SnapClone, demote it back to a Container.
