This issue has been solved. See solution.


Customer has NetApp filers in primary site and wants to replicate to secondary site with VVR, can this be done using VVR? I have been told it could not with NFS.

Can it be done and how?

Thanks Lee

VVR is host based replication which can only replicate Veritas volumes.  If you can present storage from NetApp filer to a host as LUNS, then if you put SF on that host and put LUNS under Veritas control then you can replication the volumes using VVR.  But if you present storage as NFS shares to a host, you cannot replicate these using VVR.
