Using DAR without Symantec Enterprise Vault
The FileStore DAR feature is optimized for use with Symantec Enterprise Vault, but you can use DAR to enable WORM capability in non-EV enviornments.
To enable WORM capability on a CIFS volume:
Use the Storage> dar enable command to enable DAR on a CIFS file system.
See Configuring data archive and retention.
Use CIFS operations to perform the following:
Create a file.
Add data to the file.
As required for WORM compliance, set the file access time (atime) to some date in the future.
Set the file permissions to read-only (RO).
The file will be WORM-compliant until the retention time expires.
This procedure applies to CIFS volumes only. NFS volumes are not supported at this time.
