Attached is a script to do SnapVault (SnapMirror XDP) with Virtual Storage Console for VMWare from NetApp without adding the whole cluster into the VSC GUI.
VSC 5.0 added support for SnapVault into the VSC for VMWare. If you want to use this function you had to add the whole destination cluster into the VSC. There is no possiblity to add only the SVM via a management interface into VSC and use SnapVault and SnapMirror.
I normally don’t add the whole cluster because of the permissions.
The second reason was VSC 4.2.x hadn’t support for SnapVault updates.
The best solution was to create a script which handles these problems and adds the capability to update SnapVault to SnapMirror cascades. It was tested with a number of different VSC versions including 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 6.0 and 6.1 and OnTap 8.2.x to 8.3.x.
I named the script SVVMcDOT -> SnapVault for VMWare with cDOT.
Along with the script you can find a little manual and the configuration file attached. Just rename the svvmcdot.doc to svvmcdot.ps1 (PowerShell Script), the configuration file from svvmcdot_config.doc to svvmcdot.conf and read the documentation.
