Creating SimpliVity backup policy to StoreOnce

I'm running a mixed federation with two clusters of legacy Cisco Omnicube nodes running 3.7.10 U1 and one new HPE DL380G10 running 4.01 U1. I have a StoreOnce running the latest release (4.2.3-2011.40) that I registered with the 4.01U1 cluster as an external store.

From the SimpliVIty vSphere Plugin I don't see a way to create a backup policy to include the external store. Am I missing something or is it only possible via CLI as described in page 131 in the 4.01 Admin guide. as well as the 4.01 command reference guide

Hi @Randolfini,

Thank you for your query. Here is a video that shows how you can back up straight to the HPE StoreOnce appliance. Click here.

Hope this helps you.

Re: Creating SimpliVity backup policy to StoreOnce

Thanks for your reply Mohsina. I have reviewed the video you shared. The video demos a one-time backup direct to the StoreOnce and shows backup policies already made that include the StoreOnce external store as a destination.

I am able to backup directly to the StoreOnce if I do a one-time backup of a VM. However if I create a new backup policy in the GUI, I don't have the external store listed as a destination.

It would seem then the only way to create a backup policy with the external store as a destination is with the CLI?

Hi @Randolfini,,

 

At this point of time creating backup policies from SVT to StoreOnce is only possible only through CLI, however, manual backups can be done using GUI per the video.
