Updated

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] [-a Access Permission (RW/RO)] [-h]

Description

The create_snap option creates a view of the specified Hybrid File Store share that reflects the data present before the specified time.

Users can mount this point-in-time view in addition to the Hybrid File Store 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.

You can limit the number of clients that have access by using the -c option.

The table lists the options that the software supports.
