I have heard that ONTAP Edge needs an active SnapVault relationship with a FAS/V Series, or it will shutdown eventually.
Is this true? Or can we use ONTAP Edge as standalone? (without SnapVault)
ONTAP Edge needs an active SnapVault-Relationship, otherwise it shuts down after 24 (?) hours...
Only Edge-T will continue to operate without active relationships.
Is this written anywhere?
I haven't found any official documents on that, I think..
What if it has a SnapVault relationship with a Simulator? Would that work?
It's mentioned here: https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1147149/html/GUID-A1581515-AECB-4FE1-A79D-31D33208988B.html
Simulator should work since there is no way to determine the controller-type of the remote storage of a snapvault relationship
Thanks, this helps!
One final thing tough, I have the evaluation version of ONTAP-Edge running for 3 days and 9 hours now, it has not yet shutdown...
Is this expected?
