Volume Collection

Question asked by Chris Lindloff on Feb 18, 2016
Latest reply on Feb 19, 2016 by Nick Dyer

I have created some vmware volumes (6) on my Nimble.  I initially chose "Protect as a standalone volume" for these volumes.  I started with a daily snapshop and then added a daily replication for each volume you like this.


Could I create a Volume Collection and move these volumes into the collection?  If I can I have some questions..


  • What happens to the current snapshots?  Will they be deleted right away?  If not will they be deleted when they reach their retention? (3 days)
  • What about the replication snapshots?
  • Can I have a daily local snapshot that is the same for the collection but then add a replication snap shot that is different for each volume in the collection?


Example would be take a local snap shot for the 6 volumes in the collection say at 9am.  Then starting with volume 1 replicate it at 5pm, then volume 2 replicated it at 6pm etc. until all 6 volumes replicate.


Thanks for any help!
