IntelliSnap SnapManagement Tool

The CommServe database stores information about file server entities like volume, snapshot, and array name. When this information is renamed on the file server, the CommServe database will have invalid references to the previous names of these entities, which can cause snap operations to fail.

The SnapManagement tool corrects the information about the file server entities stored in the CommServe database. One of the biggest advantages of using this tool instead of a QScript is that the SnapManagement Tool also performs array validation. During its operations, the tool accesses the array to discover the changes and then updates in the CommServe database with the new names.

The tool does not update array entities on OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM).
