Deployment and a successful initial run of an IntelliSnap backup in some complex environments may require customization, due to specific dependencies in your environment. The following parameters are known to affect the deployment and initial run and hence need a thorough evaluation:

  • Firmware versions on the array
  • Device types
  • Mode of access
  • Security configuration
  • Operating Systems interacting with the storage array
  • Application layout on the storage array LUNs
