This Post contains Screenshots of upcoming networker2go. it is subject to change !
First of all, Virtual Geek posted a nice Update Update on how to get EMC´s Scaleout Fileserver iSILON as a Virtual Appliance for testing.
Good start for those who want to Test Isilon with Networker Snapshot management for NAS that is currently in Beta!
Here is a Brief Walkthrough .
First off all we specify a new Networker Client.
In my Lab, i connect to Isilons Smart Connect Address:
Make sure to check NAS Device
Next, we have to specify the Credentials for management,
NDMP if we like to do a Rollover to a NDMP Device or Data Domain :-) ,
and the File Server credentials when we like to Mount the Volumes for restores
Next we can select the Snapshot Configuration.
In the beta, only Local is available.
We create a new Group with an 2 Hour Schedule starting from 00:00
Next i create a new Snapshot policy, 12 Snaps daily, every 2nd backup
As for now, we leave NDMP to Dump ....
This si our Summary:
When you start the group, you will see the Snapshots automatically Created on the Isilon.
You can also Import the Existing Snapshots into NSM:
A run Discovery from Devices in the NMC will discover all Snaps created by SnapIQ:
Now, for a recover, i can select to recover from the Snapshot or from the NDMP Backup.
In this Example i will retore from a Snapshot and use my Networker Server as Recover target.
I can now select the Saveset to Recover and the Mount option to Browse the Saveset:
The Snapshot get´s mounted:
And is Accessible from the Mounthost:
I will post a Howto for configuring Isilon into Networker2go soon.
