Editing Snapshot Configuration Properties of the HP 3PAR Storage Array

You can modify snapshot properties that control the behavior of the storage array in your environment.

Before You Begin

If the HP 3PAR is the backend storage array of the EMC VPLEX storage array, the Remote MediaAgent computer on the backend HP 3PAR array is NOT supported.

If you plan to specify a Remote Snap MediaAgent computer, complete the following tasks:

  • Verify that the Remote Snap MediaAgent computer has access to the array.
  • Verify that the Remote Snap MediaAgent computer and the client computer have the same MediaAgent version installed.
  • Type the Remote Snap MediaAgent computer name in the Remote Snap MA snapshot configuration property.

If you are configuring the source array for replication, then type the target array name of the remote array on the Array Id of the target array for replication property.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, click the Storage tab, and then click the Array Management icon.

    The Array Management dialog box appears.

  2. Select an HP 3PAR array, and then click Edit.

    The Array Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Snap Configuration tab, edit the Snapshot Properties.
  4. Click OK.
