Feature
Description
LUN reserve
auto-tuner
The StoreVault Manager LUN reserve auto-tuner feature
reserves a guaranteed amount of space for Snapshot
copies. StoreVault Manager automatically enables the
LUN reserve auto-tuner while creating a LUN of 50 GB
and larger. In this feature, a default amount of space is
allocated by the system for Snapshot copies. As the data
is written to the LUN and Snapshot copies are taken, the
system allocates extra space for the Snapshot copies. The
system reclaims the reserved space when the Snapshot
copies are deleted, and the reclaimed space is added to
the global free space of the system. For more
information, see “LUN reserve auto-tuner” on page 229.
Cross-protocol
The StoreVault Manager cross-protocol feature enables a
Windows client to access the UNIX® platform data and
a UNIX client to access the Windows platform data. You
can share or export directories existing in the default
/vol/shares or /vol/exports directory paths.
Note
You must have licenses for both NFS and CIFS to use
the cross-protocol feature.
For a Windows client to access UNIX security style
directory, you must add a share to the existing UNIX
security style directory. The existing directory can be a
part of either the /vol/shares or the /vol/exports default
directory and can be at any level with in the directory.
For a UNIX client to access Windows security style
directory, you must add an export to the existing
Windows security style directory. The existing Windows
directory can be a part of either the /vol/shares or the
/vol/exports default directories and can be at any level
within the directory.
User mapping enables cross-protocol support.
14
Overview of StoreVault Manager software
Feature
Description
User mapping
Mapping a user having a Windows username and a
UNIX username is a fundamental aspect of crossprotocol access. Cross-protocol access evaluates the
user's rights to perform file and folder operations within
the Windows and UNIX environments.
For cross-protocol access to work, ensure that the
Windows user name and the UNIX user name are same.
Note
A default user mapping exists between the Windows
administrator and UNIX root user for same rights in the
cross-protocol environment.
Chapter 1: Introduction to the StoreVault storage system
15
What RAID is
The StoreVault storage system uses redundant array of independent disks
(RAID) technology to store your data safely.
The following table describes the two levels of RAID that are supported by the
StoreVault storage system. Both types of RAID protect your data.
RAID level
RAID-4
(default)
RAID-DP
Description
Single parity RAID uses one dedicated parity disk in addition
to the data storage disks to protect your data. It offers
protection against a single disk failure. Data is re-created
using parity and data information remaining on unaffected
disks in the array.
RAID double-parity uses a second parity disk in addition to
the standard parity disk to give a second layer of data
protection. With RAID-DP, data can be recovered even if two
disks fail at the same time.
The following figure shows the data disks, hot spare disks, parity disks, and
double-parity disk in RAID-4 and RAID-DP.
16
Overview of StoreVault Manager software
Configuring disk
drives
The StoreVault S500 and S550 storage systems have a capacity for 12 disks and
the StoreVault S300 has a capacity for 8 disks. You can configure each of these
disks as a primary drive or a spare drive. The following table explains the
configuration types.
Drive type
Description
Primary
A primary storage drive can store data or parity
information. This drive is considered part of the
RAID group of active disks.
Spare
A spare drive is a working drive that can be used for
one of the following tasks:
◆
increase the overall storage capacity when
added to the RAID group
◆
replace a drive that has failed
Note
It is recommended that you maintain at least one spare drive at all times.

Grouping network interfaces
This section provides information about virtual network interface, failover
mechanism, load-balancing, and types of virtual network interfaces, and explains
the process of grouping network interfaces.
Virtual network
interface
StoreVault Manager enables you to group the network interfaces of the
StoreVault storage system and create a logical interface. This logical interface is
called as a virtual interface. You can create one or more virtual interface
depending upon the availability of network interfaces. You can configure a
virtual interface either in single-mode or multimode. The grouping of interfaces
supports network failover mechanism and load-balancing. The network failover
mechanism provides uninterrupted network connectivity to the storage system.
The load balancing provides faster and uninterrupted network connectivity to
StoreVault storage system.
What network
failover mechanism
does
Network failover mechanism automatically switches to an available standby
network interface if the primary network interface fails due to some technical
problems.
What loadbalancing does
Load-balancing distributes the network traffic load equally among the available
network interfaces on the storage system. This helps in providing faster service to
clients. The load-balancing feature is active only with the multi-mode virtual
interface.
Types of virtual
network interfaces
StoreVault storage systems support single-mode virtual interface and multimode
virtual interface.
Single-mode virtual interface: In a single-mode virtual interface, only one
of the interfaces is active. The other interfaces are on standby, ready to take over
if the active interface fails. The active interface fails when the link status is down,
which signals that the interface has lost connection with the storage system. In a
single-mode virtual interfaces failover is controlled by the storage system. This
90
Network settings
mode of virtual interface network does not require any switch configuration or a
switch that supports link aggregation. A common Media Access Control (MAC)
address is shared by all the network interfaces of a single-mode virtual interface.
Multimode virtual interface: In a multimode virtual network interface, all
interfaces are active. This logical aggregation of interfaces provides higher
throughput than a single-mode virtual network interface. Multimode virtual
interfaces can recover from a failure of up to (n-1) interfaces, where n is the total
number of interfaces that form the virtual interface. A multimode virtual
interface requires a switch that supports link aggregation over multiple switch
ports. Data ONTAP is responsible for distributing outbound traffic. Data ONTAP
does not have control over how inbound packets arrive because each end of an
aggregate is responsible for controlling the distribution of its outbound traffic. A
common Media Access Control (MAC) address is shared by all the network
interfaces of a multimode virtual interface.
Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP),
and Cisco System’s proprietary link aggregation protocol are not supported for
the multimode virtual network interface. You can use any switch that supports
aggregates, but does not have to control packet exchange for configuring an
aggregate, for the multimode virtual network interfaces. For information about
configuring the switch, see your switch vendor's documentation.
Advantages of
virtual interfaces
Following are the advantages of using virtual interfaces:
◆
Fault tolerance. If one interface in a virtual interface group goes down, your
storage system can stay connected to the network using the other interfaces.
◆
Higher throughput with multimode virtual interface. Multiple interfaces
work as one interface.
◆
No single point of failure. If the physical interfaces in a virtual interface are
connected to different switches and a switch goes down, your storage system
stays connected to the network through the other switch.
Note
Data ONTAP 7.0.3S8 or later supports grouping of network interfaces. If you
have a Data ONTAP earlier than 7.0.3S8, upgrade using the StoreVault system
software upgrade feature.

Services: The Services tab on the Advanced dialog box is used to enable and
disable FTP, DNS, NetBIOS Over TCP/IP, Replication log, NDMP, and
AutoSupport diagnostic e-mails (ASUP), and to make the Snapshot copies
directory visible or invisible.
◆
FTP
FTP is used only to upgrade the version of Data ONTAP on the StoreVault
storage system. In addition, in Active Directory based environments, FTP
can also be used as a service. Administrators have to create a directory for
every domain user under shares\ftp\. The name of the directory has to match
the domain user ID. After this is done, when the corresponding domain user
logs in, the FTP service authenticates the user just like a domain user. After
the user has successfully logged in, the FTP user is automatically included in
the shares\ftp\<user ID> directory.
◆
DNS
Enables the location of computers and services by user-friendly names, and
it also enables the discovery of other information stored in the database.
◆
NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT)
Specifies whether the network connection is obtained the setting from a
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. If you are manually
configuring an IP address, select this option to enable NetBT. This option is
not available for dial-up connections.
◆
Replication log
Displays logs related to the replication process.
◆
~Snapshot directory—Enables or disables the display of Snapshot copy
folders to end users from the Windows Internet Explorer browser.
◆
NDMP
The Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) is a standardized
protocol for controlling backup, recovery, and other transfers of data
between primary and secondary storage.
❖
By enabling NDMP protocol support on StoreVault, you enable the
StoreVault to carry out communications with NDMP-enabled data
protection applications, tape devices or servers that are participating in
backup or recovery operations.
Note
After you disable the NDMP service, the StoreVault storage system
continues processing all requests of already established sessions, but rejects
new sessions. To start a new session, you need to enable the NDMP service.
114

◆
AutoSupport Diagnostics Emails (ASUP)
By enabling the 'AutoSupport Diagnostic Email' check box your StoreVault
system automatically sends e-mail messages to the administrator and
technical support team if the StoreVault system experiences problems.

You should keep 'AutoSupport Diagnostic Emails' enabled to ensure proper
service for your StoreVault. For more information, click 'What are ASUPs?'
in the services dialog box.

115
Manage Hosts File: This tab allows you to type the IP address and host name
information about each storage system. This information is required for
replication to work properly.
It is not mandatory to update Manage Hosts File. It is used only in environments
where the StoreVault storage systems that are involved in replication cannot
resolve each other’s names. This occurs when the user’s DNS is not configured
to include both the storage systems. You should update the DNS, if possible. In
the case when this cannot be done, the administrator needs to resort to managing
the hosts file.

Adding Windows shares
As an administrator, you can create directories on the storage system. These
directories do not automatically become accessible to users. You must create
shares that correspond to these directories so that users can share them.
A Windows share is location on a computer network, which allows multiple
users on the same network to have a centralized space to store files.
The following steps describe how to create an area for users to store their data on
the StoreVault storage system. The Common Internet File System (CIFS)
protocol is used for sharing these files and folders over the network. All security
for access is handled through Windows.
1. You must have Windows authorization to access the default share named
Shares.
Computer Manager manages Share permissions.
2. Create a new directory in the default /vol/shares directory. Right-click on the
Windows shares element in the Primary Storage area and select Add Shares
to launch a Windows Explorer window.
3. Share the directory using the shares snap-in directly from Explorer.
This step creates a share through which the end users can access Windows
files over the network. You will need to reenter the administrator login and
password for the StoreVault storage system.
Note
You can share or export folders existing in /vol/shares or /vol/exports.

◆
“LUN reserve auto-tuner” on page 144
The logical unit number (LUN) represents a logical unit of storage on a storage
system that is accessed by clients.
LUN management involves the following activities:
◆
LUN and initiator group setup using the LUN wizard
◆
Enabling and disabling FCP and iSCSI services
◆
Initiator group management
◆
FCP management
For proper LUN connections, complete the following steps.
Step
142
Action
1
Use the host server application to configure the host server
(Windows or UNIX host) to connect to the StoreVault storage
system using iSCSI or FCP.
2
Create the LUN (iSCSI or FCP) on the StoreVault storage system
using StoreVault Manager software.
About LUNs
About iSCSI
Internet SCSI (iSCSI) is a transport protocol that encapsulates SCSI block-level
storage commands into standard Ethernet packets for transport over IP networks.
When using iSCSI with a file server such as StoreVault, storage devices or LUNs
appear as local disks to the host that connects to the file server using the iSCSI
protocol.
About FCP
Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) is a transport protocol that encapsulates SCSI
block-level storage commands into fibre channel for transport over SAN
networks.
FCP enables Fibre Channel connections for high-performance SANs.
Differences
between iSCSI and
FCP
The following table lists the differences between FCP and iSCSI.

~18k
Note
Using StoreVault Manager, you can create both iSCSI and FCP LUNs. The steps
to create a LUN are same for both the types of protocols.
Attention
If both iSCSI and FCP network cards are active at the same time on the
StoreVault storage system, then the iSCSI LUN appears twice on the server.
About VDS LUNs
Chapter 8: Managing LUNs
A Virtual Disk Service (VDS) LUN is created on StoreVault by using Microsoft
Storage Manager for SANs with a VDS provider. You can enable Snapshot
copies for a VDS LUN using StoreVault Manager.
143
After you enable Snapshotting on a VDS LUN using the StoreVault Manager,
then the VDS-created LUN changes to StoreVault Manager LUN. You can
reserve space for Snapshot copies, and also replicate and resize a VDS LUN
using StoreVault Manager as you do for a StoreVault Manager LUN. However,
you cannot use Microsoft Storage Manager SANs to resize and replicate LUNs,
and create Snapshot copies.
The VDS LUN icon appearance is different from StoreVault Manager LUN icon.
Note
After creating a VDS LUN you can enable Snapshottting using StoreVault
Manager.
About GPT partition
LUNs
StoreVault Manager supports the GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning style
on new Generic LUN types created by StoreVault Manager. For creating GPT
partitioning style LUNs, you need Data ONTAP S family Edition 7.2.1S10
installed on your storage system. GPT based LUNs are supported with Windows
Server 2003 SP1 or later Windows version.
You can create a LUN with a maximum size of 12 TB.
Note
To create a generic LUN of size greater than 2 TB, you must select the OS Type
as Windows GPT.

LUN naming
guidelines
Generic LUN
Chapter 8: Managing LUNs
Remember the following points when creating LUNs using SnapDrive for
Windows StoreVault Edition:
◆
Install StoreVault Manager on the same Windows Server 2003 as SnapDrive
for Windows StoreVault Edition.
◆
If you are using SnapManager for Exchange Server StoreVault Edition for
managing your Exchange Server database, then you need to install
SnapManager for Exchange Server on the same Windows Server 2003.
◆
You can manage the LUNs only on the Windows Server 2003 on which they
are created. You cannot manage the LUNs from any other server.
◆
The LUNs created on Windows Server 2003 can be mapped to that computer
initiator only (host).
◆
If you want to use the LUN on a different server, you need to un-map the
LUN from the existing local machine initiator. Log on to the other Windows
Server 2003 from which you want to manage the LUN. Then, map the LUN
to that local machine initiator.
◆
LUNs created using SnapDrive at the background use the NTFS file system.
◆
SnapDrive works in the background for the following LUN types.
❖
Oracle LUN type with Windows as operating system
❖
Exchange Server
❖
SQL Server
❖
Server LUN
Remember the following guidelines when naming a LUN:
A LUN name cannot:
◆
Start with a number
◆
Have space between characters
◆
Have special characters
A Generic LUN is a standard LUN for storing any kind of data. You can create a
generic LUN for Windows, Linux, Solaris®, Windows GPT, and NetWare
operating system. A Generic LUN does not have any file system. You cannot
mount the Snapshot copies of these LUNs.
147
VMware LUN
VMware LUN type is for storing VMware application data. The operating
system for a VMware LUN type is VMware. You can create, delete, and restore
the Snapshot copies for this LUN type. The LUN wizard displays only VMware
hosts for mapping while LUN creation. The Snapshot copies created using
SnapDrive for Windows StoreVault Edition can be mounted as virtual disk
drives, and unmount the Snapshot copy. The procedure for creating and resizing
a VMware LUN are same as the Generic LUN.
Microsoft SQL
database LUN
Microsoft SQL Database LUN type is for storing SQL database application data.
The operating system type for the SQL LUN type is Windows. If SnapDrive for
Windows StoreVault Edition is installed on your system, then the wizard uses the
Snapdrive for creating SQL database LUN. You can create, delete, and restore
the Snapshot copies. You can also mount the Snapshot copy as a virtual disk
drive and unmount the Snapshot copies of the SQL LUN. The steps for creating
an SQL Database LUN are same as the Server LUN.
Oracle database
LUN
An Oracle Database LUN type is for storing Oracle application data. The OS

none—The storage system does not require authentication for the initiator.
◆
deny—The initiator is denied access to the storage system.
◆
Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)—The initiator logs
in using a CHAP user name and password. You can specify a CHAP
password or generate a random password.
There are two types of CHAP user names and passwords:
◆
Inbound—The storage system authenticates the initiator. Inbound settings
are required if you are using CHAP authentication.
◆
Outbound—This is an optional setting to enable the initiator to authenticate
the storage system. You can use outbound settings only if you defined an
inbound user name and password on the storage system.
You can define a list of initiators and their authentication methods. If you do not
specify a list of initiators and authentication methods, the default method is none
- any initiator can access the storage system without authentication.
Guidelines for
using CHAP
authentication
178
The following guidelines apply to CHAP authentication:
◆
If you define an inbound user name and password on the storage system, you
must use the same user name and password for outbound CHAP settings on
the initiator.
◆
If you also define an outbound user name and password on the storage
system to enable bidirectional authentication, you must use the same user
name and password for inbound CHAP settings on the initiator.
◆
You cannot use the same user name and password for inbound and outbound
settings on the storage system.

Initiator groups
About initiator
groups
An initiator group (igroup) is a collection of initiators. An igroup is a list of
initiators that can provide access to one or more LUNs. When you map a LUN to
an igroup, you are granting access to that LUN to all the initiators within that
igroup. If an initiator is not a member of an igroup that is mapped to a LUN, that
initiator does not have access to the LUN. You can map a LUN to an initiator
which is already a member of an igroup.
In the case of iSCSI clients, initiators are identified in an igroup by their node
names. In the case of FCP clients, initiators are identified in an igroup by their
worldwide port names (WWPNs).
The Initiator Group tab provides the following details.
◆
Group—name of the initiator group. Right-click on the group name to
rename, add a group, delete a group or edit a group.
◆
Type—type of protocol (iSCSI or FCP).
◆
OS— UNIX, Linux, Solaris, NetWare, and VMware
◆
Initiators—indicates the name of the initiators.
You can perform the following tasks from the initiator dialog box:

Editing an igroup
You can edit an igroup and add or remove a particular initiator from an igroup.
You can add only those initiators which are connected to the StoreVault storage
system. This enables you to give access privileges to a LUN for a particular
igroup.
Note
You can only add iSCSI initiators to an iSCSI igroup and FCP initiators to an
FCP igroup, and can add an initiator to an igroup of the same OS type.
Reference ID: An igroup or an initiator is allotted with a reference ID when a
LUN is mapped onto it. The reference ID helps you to identify which LUN is
mapped with which initiator or igroup. The allocated reference ID of the igroup
is applicable to all the initiators of that igroup. You cannot add an initiator to an
igroup if the initiator reference ID and the igroup reference ID are the same.
To see the reference ID of an initiator or igroup, open the StoreVault iSCSI/FCP
/LUN Properties dialog box, select the LUN information tab, and check under
Maps column.

About quotas
What a quota is
A quota is a set of rules. A quota limits the disk space or number of files, or both
that can be used by a user or group. The StoreVault Manager enables you to set
and manage quota for a user in Windows and UNIX environments. In UNIX
environments, you can set quotas only for groups.
Note
If a user name is the same for Windows and UNIX environments, you can set a
single quota for that user.
Use quota for the following:
Quota target
◆
To limit the amount of disk space or the number of files that can be used by
a user or group
◆
To track the amount of disk space or the number of files that can be used by
a quota target, without imposing a limit
◆
To notify users when disk space or file usage file usage is high
A quota target can be any one of the following:
◆
A user, as represented by a UNIX ID or a Windows ID.
◆
A group, as represented by a UNIX group name or group ID (GID).
The quota target determines the quota type, as shown in the following table.

About quotas
Quota limits
Hard limit: A hard limit is a quota limit that cannot be exceeded.
Soft limit: A soft limit is a quota limit that can be exceeded. For example, the
registered e-mail ID receives an alert if the user or group exceeds their soft quota
limit.
Note
You can specify hard and soft limits for users and groups on disk space and
number files.
Quota types
Explicit quota: If the quota specification references the name or ID of the
quota target, the quota is an explicit quota.
Default quota: You can restrict or rack the disk space usage by a quota target
even without specifying explicit quota.
Derived quota: If a quota is applied to a target that does not have an explicit
quota, it is called a derived quota.
Tracking quota: A tracking quota tracks the resources that are used by a
particular user or group, but does not limit the disk space or number of files. You
can use a quota report to view the resources that are used by a user or group. For
more information, see “Quota report” on page 202.
Quota for mapped
users
The cross-protocol feature enables a Windows user to access UNIX data and a
UNIX user to access Windows data. A default mapping exists if both the
Windows user name and UNIX user name are same. When a quota rule is set for
a UNIX user and the user is mapped with the same user name in the Windows
environment, then this quota rule is also applied to the Windows user when
trying to access the UNIX data. Similarly, if a quota rule is set for a Windows
user and the user is mapped with the same user name in the UNIX environment,
then this quota rule is also applied to the UNIX user when trying to access the
Windows data.
For Example: A UNIX user (User1) is mapped with a Windows user
(domain\User1) and a quota rule is set for User1 with a quota limit of 10 files.
User1 writes five files. Now, domain\User1 accessing the UNIX Exports, can
create 5 files only, as this quota rule for User 1is also applies to the Windows
SMB\User1.
Chapter 9: Quota Management
195
Creating quota rules
You can access the quotas dialog box either from StoreVault Windows Shares
Properties window or StoreVault Export Properties window. From quotas dialog
box you can manage quotas for users and groups. You can add, modify, delete a
quota, and view a quota report from quotas dialog box.
StoreVault Manager enables you to set quotas for users and groups. You can
create a quota rule for a single user based on the user name or user ID. Similarly,
you can create and apply a quota rule for group based on group name or group
ID. The quota rule that is created first is applied and appears in the quota report
even though a second rule is created later. However, if you want to apply the
second quota rule, delete the first quota rule.
Note
You cannot set a quota for a LUN.
You can perform the following functions from the quotas dialog box.

Backing up to tape
StoreVault supports a locally attached tape drive on the optional 68-pin LVD
SCSI port. StoreVault Manager includes some basic backup and restore
commands that allow rudimentary backup and restore activities. More
sophisticated backup software can control a tape device attached to the
StoreVault unit using the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP). Contact
your reseller for more information.
The Dump to Tape option lets you back up data from any of the drives to the tape
backup system.
Note
You need to enable NDMP service for NDMP enabled tape backup devices.
To enable or disable NDMP service, complete the following steps:
From the System menu, select Advanced > services and select NDMP check
box in the services dialog box.
For information on NDMP, see “NDMP” on page 114
For information on tape configuration file see, “Uploading a tape configuration
file” on page 104

What a Snapshot copy is
About Snapshot
copies
A Snapshot copy is a locally retained point-in-time image of the data, which is
taken instantly with no impact on system performance and with very little impact
on storage capacity. A Snapshot copy is a read-only image of the file system
frozen in time, which cannot be changed or deleted. Snapshot copies can be
browsed in a directory structure that looks just like the original. In fact, the only
difference is that the a Snapshot copy can be recovered instantaneously to revert
to that point in time for an individual file, a folder, a directory, or even for the
entire file system. A Snapshot copy on the StoreVault storage system is a pointin-time image of the set of files and directories in the Windows Shares, UNIX
Exports, and LUNs as they were at a specific time. After a Snapshot copy is
taken, changes to the data are made to the original files and the Snapshot copies
remain unchanged.
The creation of Snapshot copies can be set up on an hourly, daily, or weekly
schedule. The administrator can determine how many of the Snapshot copies are
taken, how many are retained, and the period of time these images are retained.
Note
A Snapshot copy takes up very little space and can be taken at any time. The
Snapshot consists of a set of additional pointers to the data. A total of 255
Snapshot copies can be taken for the Windows Shares and UNIX Exports.
When Snapshot
copies are created
The StoreVault Manager automatically takes Snapshot copies as per the
schedule. Snapshot copies can also be created and deleted manually using
StoreVault Manager.
Advantages of
Snapshot copies
Snapshot copies enable system administrators to perform the following tasks:
226
◆
Create instantaneous backups for the Windows Shares, UNIX Exports, and
LUNs
◆
Recover older versions or sets of files that were accidentally changed or
deleted
◆
Restore their own files without needing a system administrator to restore
files from tape
What a Snapshot copy is
Accessing the
Snapshot dialog
box
To access the Snapshot dialog box:
◆
For Shares, right-click Windows Shares in the Primary Storage area.
◆
For Exports, right-click UNIX Exports in the Primary Storage area.
◆
For LUNs, right-click the specific LUN in the Primary Storage area.
Chapter 12: Snapshot Management
227
Windows shares and UNIX Exports Snapshot
The StoreVault Manager enables you to schedule automatic Snapshot copies and
also allows to taking manual Snapshot copies. The Snapshot copies taken for
Windows Shares reside within the Snapshot folder of the default Shares folder,
and the Snapshot copies taken for UNIX Exports reside within the Snapshot
folder of the default Export directory.
Windows Shares
and UNIX Exports
Snapshot dialog
box
The Windows Shares and UNIX Exports Snapshots dialog box has the following
sections.
◆
StoreVault Primary Snapshots Schedule
◆
Snapshots to retain
◆
Snapshot Space reservation
◆
StoreVault Primary Snapshot copies
StoreVault Primary Snapshots Schedule: From the StoreVault Primary
Snapshots Schedule section you can schedule hourly, daily, and/or weekly
automatic Snapshot copies.
Snapshots to retain: From the Snapshots to retain section you can retain
Snapshot copies as per your requirement.
Snapshot space reservation: The Snapshots tab for Shares and Exports
includes a slider control to adjust the space reserved for Snapshot copies.
You can move the slider to increase or decrease reserve space for Snapshot
copies.
You can increase the Snapshot space reservation if you need to retain more
number of Snapshot copies.
StoreVault Primary Snapshots: The StoreVault Primary Snapshots section
displays the name, access time, and mounts point of a Snapshot copy. From this
section you can create, restore, or delete a Snapshot copy.
228
Windows shares and UNIX Exports Snapshot
LUN Snapshot copy
A LUN Snapshot copy is a point-in-time image of a particular LUN. You can
schedule automatic Snapshot copies or you can take a manual Snapshot copy of
any LUN in the StoreVault storage system. You can enable Snapshotting while
creating a LUN and schedule automatic Snapshot copies from the LUN Snapshot
dialog box. The LUN Snapshot dialog box also enables to take manual Snapshot
copies.
You can perform the following functions from the Snapshot dialog box.
◆
Set up automatic Snapshot schedule
◆
Enable/disable snapshotting
◆
Mount/unmount LUN Snapshots for the LUNs created using SnapDrive for
Windows StoreVault Edition
◆
Restore Snapshot copies
◆
Delete Snapshot copies
◆
Enable/disable LUN reserve auto-tuner
The LUN Snapshot dialog box as data protection section to enable/ disable
Snapshotting and LUN reserve auto-tuner, all other sections are same as of the
Shares and Exports.
Data Protection
section
LUN reserve autotuner
In the Data Protection section of the LUN Snapshot dialog box, you can
enable/disable the Snapshots and LUN Reserve auto-tuner.
◆
You cannot enable LUN reserve auto-tuner from the LUN Snapshots dialog
box, if Snapshotting is enabled while creating a LUN.
◆
You can enable Snapshotting and LUN reserve auto-tuner form LUN
Snapshots dialog box, if the Snapshotting and LUN reserve auto-tuner is not
enabled while creating a LUN.
The StoreVault Manager LUN reserve auto-tuner feature reserves a guaranteed
amount of space for Snapshot copies. You need to enable the LUN reserve autotuner while creating a LUN. In this feature, a default amount of space is allocated
by the system for Snapshot copies. As the data is written onto the LUN and
Snapshot copies are taken the system allocates extra space for Snapshot copies as
Chapter 12: Snapshot Management
229
per the requirement. The system reclaims the reserved space when the Snapshot
copies are deleted, and the reclaimed space is added to global free space of the
system.
How the LUN reserve auto-tuner works: When you create a LUN with
Snapshotting on, and enable LUN reserve auto-tuner, the system allocates 20%
of the LUN size as Snapshot reserve. This space is free before Snapshot copies
are taken. When the data is written on the LUN and Snapshotting is scheduled for
the LUN, and then the reserved space is used. The system observes the space
utilization by the Snapshot copies, and starts allocating extra space automatically.
When the reserve space reaches 130% of the LUN size, then the system starts
deleting the oldest Snapshot copy. The reserve space for Snapshot copies can
expand up to 140% of the LUN size. Once the Snapshot reserve reaches 140% of
the LUN size, the scheduled Snapshotting will be disabled and an alert is sent to
the administrator.
Note
You can enable LUN reserve auto-tuner for a LUN size of 50 GB or greater and
you need to enable Snapshotting before enabling LUN reserve auto-tuner. If
LUN reserve auto-tuner is not enabled while creating the LUN, an additional
static Snapshot copy penalty of 100% is added to the 50% Snapshot reserve.
Reclaiming Snapshot copies reserve space: When the LUN Snapshot
copies are deleted manually, or deleted by the system faster than it was used, then
the system starts reclaiming the freed space. The process of reclaiming free space
is performed every hour. This process stops once the Snapshot reserve space
reaches the minimum limit of 20% of the LUN size. See “Automatic space tuner
for a replicated LUN” on page 246 for a replicated LUNs.

231
Scheduling
automated
Snapshot
In this area of the Snapshot dialog box, you set the schedule for Snapshot copies.
You can specify the time for taking Snapshot copies or you can select ‘Select
All’ check box for taking hourly Snapshot copies. As per the earlier screenshot, a
Snapshot copy will be taken starting at 12:00 a.m. and at 2:00 a.m.
Note
For the Snapshot copy scheduled at 12:00 p.m., this Snapshot copy is actually
taken at 12:01 a.m. the following day.
Note
You cannot schedule automated Snapshot copies for the LUNs created using
SnapDrive for Windows StoreVault Edition in the background. You can only
take manual Snapshot copies.
The names of the Snapshot copies will be hourly.0, hourly.1, hourly.2, and so
forth, with the most recent Snapshot copy named hourly.0.
These names will appear in the StoreVault Primary Snapshot list.
Retaining Snapshot
copies
In this area of the Snapshot dialog box, set the number of Snapshot copies to be
retained by the StoreVault storage system.
If you do not want weekly Snapshot copies to be taken, enter 0 (zero) in the
Snapshot (s) to retain section.
232
Administering Snapshot copies for Shares/Exports and LUNs
Hourly
This field indicates how many hourly Snapshot copies are retained on a first in first out (FIFO) basis. Hourly Snapshot copies are taken based on the time setting
on the Primary Snapshot schedule clock.
For example, a number 6 here means that six hourly Snapshot copies are
retained. When the seventh hourly Snapshot copy is taken, the oldest hourly
Snapshot copies are automatically deleted.
The following table lists the Snapshot copies that will be taken, when they will be
taken, and what they will be named.
Daily
This field indicates how many daily Snapshot copies are retained on a FIFO
basis. Snapshot copies are taken at 12:01 a.m. daily except on the day a weekly
Snapshot is taken.
For example, a number 2 here means that two daily Snapshot copies are retained.
When the third daily Snapshot copy is taken, the oldest daily Snapshot expires
and is automatically deleted.
Weekly
This field indicates how many total weekly Snapshot copies are retained on a
FIFO basis. Weekly Snapshot copies are taken on Monday at 12:01 a.m.
For example, a number 3 here means that three weekly Snapshot copies are
retained. When the fourth weekly Snapshot copy is taken, the oldest weekly
Snapshot expires and is automatically deleted.

The StoreVault internal clock uses a 24-hour clock (military time). Therefore, a
Snapshot with a time of 16:00 means that this Snapshot was taken at 4:00 p.m.
Naming Snapshot
copies
The most recent Snapshot copy has the file extension 0 and the next most recent
has the file extension 1, as shown in the following screenshot.
The screenshot shows an example of the nightly Snapshot copies. In the daily
Snapshot, the Friday night/Saturday Snapshot copy was taken on May 6 at
00:00:01 (named nightly.1), and the Snapshot taken on Saturday night/Sunday at
00:00:01 (named nightly.0) is the most recent nightly Snapshot copy in the list.
When the next daily scheduled Snapshot copy is taken it is named nightly.0 and
the Snapshot copy previously named nightly.0 is renamed nightly.1.
Therefore, the most recent nightly Snapshot copy will always be named
nightly.0.
The following dialog box shows the Snapshot copy names and the times that they
were taken.
The weekly, daily, and hourly Snapshot copies are taken based on the numbers
that you enter for each type of Snapshot copy. StoreVault takes the Snapshot
copies automatically based on the schedule that has been assigned.
234

The StoreVault Manager replicates data from one StoreVault storage system (the
source) to another StoreVault storage system or fabric-attached storage (FAS)
(the destination), and periodically updates the destination to reflect incremental
changes of the source. This results in an online, read-only copy at the destination
that contains the same data as the source at the time of the most recent update.
This feature supports asynchronous replication. The feature enables to replicate
Windows Shares, UNIX Exports, and LUNs to the destination storage system.
During replication, a Snapshot copy image replicates from the source storage
system to a destination storage system at regular intervals based on the selected
schedule.
Note
For replicating between two StoreVault storage systems, the destination storage
system must be using the same or later version of Data ONTAP as the source
storage system. You can also replicate data from any model of the StoreVault
storage system to FAS storage system.
242
Introduction to replication
Replication
advantages
Replicating data provides the following advantages:
◆
Provide users quick access to replicated data in the event of a disaster that
makes the source Windows Shares or UNIX Exports or LUNs unavailable.
◆
Update the source to recover from disaster, data corruption (Windows
Shares and UNIX Exports).
◆
Archive the data to tape.
◆
Back up or distribute the data to remote sites.
Chapter 13: StoreVault Replication
243
The components of
replication
File-based
replication
(Windows shares
and UNIX exports)
The basic deployment for replication consists of the following:
◆
replica directory in Window Shares and UNIX Exports
◆
LUNs
The replication of Windows shares or UNIX exports involves replication of filebased data. The Windows shares and UNIX exports default directories has a
special directory called replica.
replica directory: After installing replication license a replica directory is
created. To replicate data of the Window shares or UNIX exports from the source
to the destination, you need to create files and folders inside respective replica
directory. To replicate files and folders out side the replica folder, you need to
move them into the respective replica directory.
Windows Shares and UNIX Exports replication has the following characteristics:
◆
Replication is asynchronous.
◆
Copies only the contents of the replica directory to a destination.
◆
The destination replica directory is read-only.
◆
Replication can set up for a maximum of 255 replicas.
Note
Only contents of the replica directory are replicated during Windows Shares or
UNIX Exports replication process. Therefore, you need to move all the required
files and folders which are outside the replica directory into the replica directory
before starting the replication process.

Introduction to replication
Block based (LUN)
replication
In LUN replication, block-based data is replicated. When you replicate a LUN, a
read-only copy of the LUN is created on the destination storage system.
LUN replication has the following characteristics:
How StoreVault
replication works
◆
Replication is asynchronous.
◆
Snapshotting must be enabled.
◆
Copies a Snapshot copy of a source LUN and all its folders and files to a
destination.
◆
Destination LUN is read-only and data is not visible until you recover and
map to a host.
StoreVault replication uses Data ONTAP's replication feature to establish a
relationship between a specified source replica directory or LUN that you want
to back up, and the destination replica directory or LUN where the backup is
kept.
The replication feature does the following:
1. Copies replica directory of Windows Shares or UNIX Exports and
Snapshotting enabled LUNs to the destination and a read-only source copies
are created.
2. Updates the destination to reflect incremental changes on the source, using
the schedule you specify.
3. The result of this process is an online, read-only Windows Shares or UNIX
Exports or LUNs replica that contains the same data as the source at the time
of the most recent update.
Chapter 13: StoreVault Replication
245
Automatic space
tuner for a
replicated LUN
The StoreVault Manager LUN reserve auto-tuner feature has the capability to
automatically resize the replicas of an auto-tuned LUN on the destination
StoreVault system when the corresponding source is resized. Here, when a LUN
is replicated onto to a destination StoreVault, the system allocates 10% more than
the source LUN as replication reserve.
For Example: If the source LUN is 100 GB with Snapshot copies reserve of 20
GB, then the initial replication reserve for the replica to grow is 10% of LUN
size+Snapshot copies reserve (100 GB + 20 GB = 120 GB, 10% of 120 GB is 12
GB). So, the replication reserve for the replica to grow in this example is 12 GB.
For more information, see “LUN reserve auto-tuner” on page 14.
As the source starts expanding, the replica size on destination automatically
adjusts during the replication process. The system provides maximum of 25% of
the source as replication reserve.
When the source size decreases, the replica size also decreases. The replication
reserve never decreases below 10% of the source.
Note
If LUN reserve auto-tuner is not enabled during LUN creation, an additional
static Snapshot penalty of 100% is added to the 50% Snapshot reserve.
Bandwidth
throttling
The StoreVault Manager Bandwidth throttling feature ensures that a bandwidth
intensive device, such as a server, that limits the quantity of data it transmits
within a specific period of time. Bandwidth throttling helps in providing quality
of service by limiting network congestion and server crashes. Select the
bandwidth to use through the StoreVault Manager replication wizard. You can
select maximum bandwidth or you can limit bandwidth. By default, maximum
bandwidth is selected.
Concurrent
replication
The number of maximum concurrent replication for the StoreVault S550 storage
system is 4 sessions and for the StoreVault S300 is 2 sessions.

License
requirements
You need to buy the StoreVault Replication license for both the source and
destination storage systems along with the StoreVault setup.
Replication
prerequisites
◆
Both the source and the destination storage systems must have StoreVault
Manager 3.0 or later and Data ONTAP® 7.2.1Sx or later versions installed.
◆

delete export rules, list the exported directories and export rules from the
StoreVault (or equivalent) boxes from where the directories are mounted on
UNIX-based systems. You can also create shares, delete shares, and list shares.
With StoreVault CLI, you can manage the following tasks:
278
◆
Create a new rule to export a directory from the storage system
◆
Modify the old rule in the export list and load the new rule
◆
Delete the rule that exports the particular directory
◆
List all the exported directories from the storage system
◆
Get the actual storage path of a particular path on the storage system
◆
Create a new share
◆
List the share on the Storage system
◆
Delete shares

Installation
Using the StoreVault CLI
Running the
StoreVault CLI
The command utility is named svmcli in the Linux system. This utility works in
the following modes:
◆
It executes the command specified on the command line while running the
command.
◆
If no options are specified, it opens a CLI-based interpreter to accept chain
of commands for which the StoreVault CLI displays the output.
◆
It runs commands from a file that can be given as input from the command
line.
The utility first gets the details about the login name and the password before
executing any command. In all these cases, the utility starts a connection with the
server with the login name and the password that has been supplied.
Initial logging in
The StoreVault CLI can be run in three modes:
◆
CLI mode - Prompts the user for inputs and displays the result to the user
continuously.
◆
Command Mode - Takes one command from the user on the shell command
line, executes the same, and displays the result to the user.
◆
File Input mode - Executes commands in the file given as input and displays
the results to the user.
When the StoreVault CLI utility is run, it can be given the following arguments:
◆
-h hostname: Host name of the storage system that the user wants to
work on.
◆
-u username: User name with which the StoreVault CLI utility connects
to the source storage system.
◆
-f filename: Execute in the File Input mode
◆
-e command arguments: Execute in the command mode.
Execute the command that follows the -e option.
Examples:
bash$ svmcli -h 10.72.162.202 -u root
bash$ svmcli -h 10.72.162.202 -u root -f
/home/nile/execute.txt
Appendix A: StoreVault Command-Line Interface
281
bash$ svmcli -h 10.72.162.202 -u root -e export list
bash$ svmcli -h 10.72.162.202 -e export list
bash$ svmcli -h 10.72.162.202 -f
/home/nile/execute.txt
bash$ svmcli -f /home/nile/execute.txt
If you do not give some of the details, such as host name and user name, the
StoreVault CLI prompts for them. You need to enter the details one by one.
Note
The -e option should always be the last option. Enter the other options before
this option. The -e and -f options cannot be given as an input at the same time.
282

Appendix A: StoreVault Command-Line Interface
285
Commands and syntax
The following sections describe the export commands and the syntax used. These
commands control three directories that are exported and the rules that control
the NFS functionality.
Create an export
command
This command is used to create a new exported directory from the storage
system. This command creates a new rule and exports the directory to the outside
environment.
Syntax:
export create [-p -v] rule rule1 rule rule2
Command options:
-p—Persistent option—If true, modifies the etc/exports file to append the rule
for a permanent change. The new rule still takes effect immediately. The default
value is false.
-v—verbose option—If true, returns a list of directories that were appended. The
errors during the append are shown in the result and 'loaded-path names' contain
the path names that were successfully appended. The default value is false.
Note
Instead of the host name, the IP address of the host can also be given. Further,
subnet masks can also be specified. All hosts can be specified using the allhosts option. If none of the options are given, then the read-write permission is
given to all-hosts and security flavor is set to 'sys'.
Example:
export create -p -v rule path=/vol/exports/test rw=nile,ganges
root=10.172.62.202 nousid=true anon=101 sec=sys
export create -p rule path=/vol/vol0/home ro=nile rw=thames
nosuid=false
These can be given in any order of preference. You can also provide many rules
in a single command. Supersede each command by the rule keyword.
Note
To export a directory with embedded spaces, give the path name within " " with
the keyword "path=" inside it.
286
Commands and syntax
Example:
export create -p -v rule "path=/vol/exports/test kk"
Note
You can create rules from StoreVault CLI only if the path begins with
/vol/exports and /vol/shares.
Modify an export
command
Run this command to change an already loaded export rule.
Syntax:
export modify rule rule1
Only one rule can be modified at a time.
Command options:
-p—Persistent option—If true, modify the etc/exports file to modify the rule
permanently. The default value is false.
Note
Instead of the host name, the IP address of the host can also be given. Further,
subnet masks can also be specified. All hosts can be specified using the allhosts option.
Example:
export modify -p rule path=/vol/exports/test rw=nile,ganges
root=10.172.62.202 nousid=true anon=101 sec=sys
Note
To modify a directory with embedded spaces, give the path name within " " with
the keyword "path=" inside it.
Example:
export modify -p rule "path=/vol/exports/test kk"
Note
You can modify a rule from StoreVault CLI only if the path begins with
“/vol/exports” or “/vol/shares”
Delete an export
This command can be used to delete an export that is already created. This
command gets the path that has to be deleted and then deletes the rule.
Syntax:
Appendix A: StoreVault Command-Line Interface
287
export delete [-p] [pathname1[ pathname2][
pathname3][..]]>/allpaths
Command options:
-p—Persistent option—Modify the etc/exports file to delete the rules
permanently. The default value is false.
Example:
StoreVault CLI> export delete /vol/exports/test
Paths Deletion: Successful
StoreVault CLI>
Run the following command for exporting the \vol\exports directory:
export create -p rule path=/vol/exports/ root=host
-v—verbose option—If true, return a verbose output of what occurred. If there is
an error after deleting only a few rules, 'deleted-path names' returns the rules that
were deleted. The default value is false.
Note
In case a directory with embedded spaces has to be deleted, then give the path
name within " ". You can delete all paths by providing the option allpaths.
Example:
export delete -p "/vol/exports/test kk"
export delete -p allpaths
Note
You can delete a rule from StoreVault CLI only if the path begins with
“/vol/exports/” or “/vol/shares”. You cannot delete the default exported path
“/vol/exports/” or “/vol/shares” using the export delete command.
Exported
directories
command
This command is used to list all the directories that are exported by the storage
system. If the -p option is given, then the exported directories from the
/etc/exports file is shown.
Syntax:
export list [-p]
Command options:
-p - Persistent option. If true, only the path names that exist in the etc/exports file
are displayed. The default value is false.
288

directory. This exported directory can be a softlink in the storage system or also
can be an alias for the actual path name.
Syntax:
export stpath pathname
Example:
StoreVault CLI> export stpath /vol/exports/test
Get Storage Path Name: Successful
Path: /vol/exports/tmp/test
StoreVault CLI>
Appendix A: StoreVault Command-Line Interface

Others
Share Name: c. Path: /vol/vol0
Share Name: c$. Path: /vol/vol0
StoreVault CLI >
Note
You can delete only one share with a single command. If you name a share as
help, then use command shares delete =help to delete the share.
List shares
command
This command lists the attributes of the share that is given. In case, the user does
not specify any share name, then the utility gets the details about all the shares.
Syntax:
Shares list name = sharename
Shares list [sharename]
This command will list the details about the sharename given in the command. If
the sharename is not given the utility lists details about all the shares on the
storage system.
Example:
StoreVault CLI > shares list
Normal Shares
Share Name: shares. Path: /vol/shares
Cross Protocol Shares
Share Name: exports. Path: /vol/exports
Others
Share Name: c. Path: /vol/vol0

Normal Share
Share Name: shares. Path: /vol/shares
StoreVault CLI >
StoreVault CLI > shares list name=shares
Normal Share
Share Name: shares. Path: /vol/shares
StoreVault CLI >
Note
Any export rule that is created for the directories in the /vol/exports directory will
be default UNIX permissions. Any export rule that is created for a directory in
/vol/shares directory would be default Windows permissions. Any rule that is
created for directories other than the above will be considered as other
permissions which comprises any of the above permissions or the mixed mode. If
you name a share as help, then use command shares list name=help to list the
details of the share.

StoreVault Alert Messages
Glossary
antistatic grounding
leash
This wrist strap is a safety device used to channel static electricity to a
proper ground when you are handling sensitive computer equipment.
ATA
Advanced Technology Attachment is one of most common storage interfaces
used in computers and storage devices. (Also see “Serial ATA” on page 305.)
Fibre Channel
Fibre Channel is a gigabit-speed network technology primarily used for
storage networking. It is the standard connection type for storage area
networks in enterprise storage. Despite its name, Fibre Channel signaling
can run on both twisted-pair copper wire and fiber optic cables.
Fibre Channel
Protocol (FCP)
Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) is the interface protocol of SCSI on the Fibre
Channel.
field-replaceable unit
(FRU)
A unit or component of a system that is designed to be replaced in the field;
that is, without returning the system to the factory or repair location.
Hot spare
A hot spare is a spare drive that is in the StoreVault product, and ready to be
used, but not currently used for data. Data ONTAP detects the presence of a
drive that has failed or is showing signs of imminent failure. The hot spare is
immediately brought online and built in the background to replace the failed
drive. The administrator is notified of the event and can physically replace
the failed drive at a convenient time.
hot-swappable drive
A disk drive that can replace a defective unit in a system while the system is
performing its normal function and without powering down the system.
LAN
Local area network. A communications infrastructure designed to connect a
large number of intercommunicating nodes.
Glossary
303
LUN
Logical unit number. A logical unit of storage on a storage system that is
accessed by client systems.
multidrive
Having multiple concurrent disk drives working simultaneously.
NAS
Network-attached storage. Refers to storage elements that connect to a network
and provide file access services to computer systems. A NAS storage element
consists of an engine, which implements the file services, and one or more
devices on which data is stored.
RAID
Redundant array of independent disks. Most RAID techniques work by adding
the number of bits in data blocks across multiple disks, the total of which is kept
on a separate disk. If one disk fails, the data can be recovered by simply
subtracting the sum of the remaining bits from the total stored on the parity disk.
RAID-4
Single parity RAID offers protection against a single disk failure. Data is
recreated using parity and data information remains on the unaffected disks in the
array.
RAID-DP
RAID double-parity uses a second parity disk in addition to the standard parity
disk to give a second layer of data protection. With RAID-DP, data can be
recovered even if more than one disk fails at the same time. This technology is
unique to Network Appliance.
SAN
Storage area network. A network whose primary purpose is the transfer of data
between computer systems and storage elements. A SAN consists of a
communication infrastructure, which provides physical connections, and a
management layer, which organizes the connections, storage elements, and
computer systems.
SCSI
Acronym for Small Computer System Interface.
304
Glossary
Serial ATA
Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) is one of most common storage
interfaces used in computers and storage devices.
Shares
A resource such as data or a printer device made available for use by users on
other computer systems.
Snapshot copy
An online, read-only copy of an entire file system that protects against accidental
deletions or modifications of files without duplicating file contents. Snapshot
copies enable users to restore files and to back up the storage system to tape
while the storage system is in use.
virtual disk
A set of disk blocks presented to an operating environment as a range of
consecutively numbered logical blocks.
Quota
A quota is a set of rules. A quota limits the disk space or number of files, or both
that can be used by a user or group.
Explicit quota
If the quota specification references the name or ID of the quota target, the quota
is an explicit quota.
Default quota
The disk space used by a quota target can be restricted or tracked even if you do
not specify an explicit quota.
Derived quota
If a quota is applied to a target that does not have an explicit quota is called a
derived quota.
Tracking quota
A tracking quota tracks the resources that are used by a particular user or group,
but does not limit the disk space or number of files.
Glossary
305
Initiator group
An initiator group (igroup) is a collection of initiators. An igroup is a list of
initiators that can provide access to a one or more LUNs.
MAC address
The Media Access Control (MAC) addresses used to identify a network interface
of a LAN are typically based on the manufacturer's serial numbers.
