Configuring Dell EMC VPLEX Migration

Use the sVPLEXSnapBackendArrayId additional setting to specify a backend array to create snapshots for local migration.

If you need to change the engine that the Dell EMC VMAX uses, update the VPLEX_VMAX_SNAP_ENGINE_<ArraySerial> additional setting. By default, the snapshot engine that is used for the Dell EMC VMAX backend array is Dell EMC TimeFinder Snap. To change this value, you must add the sVPLEXSnapBackendArrayId additional setting.

Procedure

  1. To the MediaAgent client, add the sVPLEXSnapBackendArrayId additional setting as shown in the following table.

    For instructions about adding additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying Additional Settings from the CommCell Console.
