Hi,

Can you explain me what is snapshot, snapclone and also brief about RSM Scripting.
We have a eva8000 then how to create a snapshot.

Thanks!

Re: snapshot and snapclone

Snapshot: point in time reference to your data. not a full copy. Changes to your data write out the original data to the "snapshot" area to preserve it.

Snapclone: full copy of your data, seperated from the parent.

RSM Scripting: RSM (Replication Solutions Manager) allows you to compose scripts within a gui based interface in order to create and utilize snapshots and snapclones. It is also used for managing remote replication.

(I think I got those right, it's been a while)

Re: snapshot and snapclone

That's pretty much it. About the only thing is to emphasize (in case it wasn't obvious):

Snapclone: POINT IN TIME full copy of your data, separated from the parent. If you have one, and there is sufficient free space, the snapclone can reside in a disk group different from the one containing the parent vdisk.
