Disaster recovery backup for StoreVirtual 4000 10.x

As the configuration backup option has been removed as of version 9.0 of the software, what is the preferred method for being able to back up the configuration of the SAN for disaster recovery purposes. I am talking about a REALLY bad day where I loose my data center due to fire or natural disaster and I only have a single site configuration.

 

I could certainly manually document all my servers, storage nodes, volumes, etc. but it seems there should be a better way.

 

Thanks,

 

Paul

You could script the creation of the SAN, right down to assigning licenses. We did this in our shop using a combination of vbs and the CLIQ.  Once the network, hosts, and VSAs are configured, the creation of the SAN takes about 15 minutes. (6 storage nodes with 13 volumes)

 

We use a predefined list of MAC addresses (VMware) on our VSAs, so assuming those are set correctly the script can identify each VSA and assign the appropriate license.
