Netapp Snapvault Setup and Configuration


Netapp Snapvault

In this tutorial we walk you through how to setup and configure Netapp Snapvault using the 8.1 Simulator. I will be using Snapvault to backup my Primary volume over to my Secondary volume. It will all be done on one controller, however in the video I point out what you will need to be able to set this up between multiple filers.
