Creating Point-In-Time View of the NFS Share

Name

create_snap

Syntax

ConfigureObjectStore -o create_snap -n <Object Store Name> -T "MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM:SS" [-c Allowed clients] [-N Snap Name] [-C Copy Precedence] [-m MediaAgent Client Name] [-h]

Description

The create_snap option creates a view of the specified NFS ObjectStore share that reflects the data present before the specified time.

Users can mount this point-in-time view in addition to the NFS ObjectStore that it was created from. For example, if the original NFS share is /userTest, then the point-in-time version is /userTest-4313228400, and users can mount both shares.

By default, all NFS clients that have access to the share, also have access to the point-in-time share, but you can limit which clients have access by using the -c option.

The table lists the options that the software supports.

The following command creates a point-in-time view for NFS ObjectStore with name /userTest share from a secondary copy. In this example, the parameters are listed on the command line.

./ConfigureObjectStore -o create_snap -n userTest -T "09-6-2106 11:00:00" -C 2
