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.

If you would like to create a rule for Storing on Storeonce-

Create rule in existing policy.
root@omnicube-ip10.20:/home/administrator-xyz# svt-policy-rule-create --policy <existing_policy_name> --frequency <see --help> --start_time <format=00:00> --end_time <format=00:00> --retention <see --help> --external-store <Name of storeonce>

*Note: underscore in start and stop times and: new switch name --external-store

You will see 2 rules in policy list in policy GUI, delete old rule

As always --help is our friend
