Mounting storage snapshots with veritas file-system on the source host
In the setup I'm working with, there is a two node cluster with veritas file-system on data volumes. For backup purposes, I plan to take a storage level snapshot of the LUNs and mount them to one of the cluster nodes(standby node) and perform the backup off that.
I would like to know if it is possible to mount storage snapshot LUNs to a Solaris system while the source LUNs are also attached to the same host ? Any special configuration required for this to work ?
I have a standalone server(Netbackup master server) to which I can make the snapshot LUNs visible. But this node is not licensed for Veritas file system. Do we need to purchase separate licenses for this node as well ? Appreciate if someone can comment on the licensing requirements as well.
