we have some datastores (volumes) on our netapp.

Now i try to backup the VMs with the netapp backup included Virtual Storage Console.


i can see the snapshots - and i can list them with the sdcli


sdcli snap list -sdf netappvm -sdv datastore1


i see them.

But how can i mount them locally ?


normally i use for the other Snapshots (another netapp)


sdcli snap mount -r DBSERVER1 -k o -s DBSERVER1_customer_log_0000AM -d s


but this doesnt work here.


How ca i get these snapshots mounted locally ?


i tried:

sdcli snap mount -s "smvi__TestBackup_date" -sdf netappvm -sdv datastore1 -d k: -k


doesnt work...


Any ideas ?
