NetApp: Establishing SnapVault relations

I’ve been spending a lot of my time the last week on getting SnapVault with out FAS-filers to work. Out came a script, which does this for a given volume (and of course SnapVault Primary and Secondary).

The script expects, that SSH public key authentification has been set up.

The script expects that you set up SSH public key authentification, in order to access the primary and secondary SnapVault filer (in order to actually create the relationship between the two).

Additionaly the script expects the source to be a qtree. That is because in my tinkering, I’ve found Volume-based SnapVaults to be less reliable than Qtree-based SnapVaults (don’t ask me why though).
