snapshot backups would normally not be visible in the MaxDB GUI tools but
MaxDB 7.8 has a new feature mentioned in SAP documents about "New Features in MaxDB 7.8"
which seems to be able to do exactly that:
backup_template_create <template_name> to external snapshot
backup_finish <template_name> ExternalBackupID <Returned ID>. | <template_name> as failed with error <tool_rc> .
Haven't been able to find much documentation about this feature yet.
I think with a slightly more complicated command set this was also possible with MaxDB 7.7.
Any examples of this working in a Netapp environment ?
Would be too much to ask if this would work in reverse for a restore as the the SnapCreator client would need to
tell the sc server to restore sc backup set ?
Thanks and Kind Regards, Norbert
