Configuring for EMC_CLARiiON_SnapView_Clone
The following must be completed before NetBackup can use the clone capabilities of the CLARiiON array. The following steps are described in the topics that follow.
Table: Configuration process for EMC_CLARiiON_SnapView_Clone
Array administrator creates clone private LUNs.
See Creating a clone private LUN with the EMC Navisphere Web interface.
Array administrator creates a clone group and selects a LUN as source.
Array administrator adds clone LUNs to the clone group.
Array administrator supplies source and target devices.
See Obtaining the device identifier for each source and clone LUN.
See About configuration for EMC_CLARiiON_SnapView_Snapshot.
See Configuring a reserved LUN pool for the storage processors.
NetBackup administrator configures a NetBackup policy for the array, using the device that are identifiers supplied by the array administrator.
See Configuring a NetBackup policy for a CLARiiON array method.
For Windows clients and the VSS method, you must synchronize the clone with its source.
These steps are separate from those taken by NetBackup to create the backup. When the backup begins, NetBackup synchronizes the clones with the source (if necessary) and splits (fractures) the clones to make them available for the backup.
For more information on the EMC array terminology in this section, see your EMC CLARiiON documentation.
