SnapVault in System Manager 3.0 questions

Currently Being Moderated

So I was happy to finally see the SnapVault tab in On Command System Manager 3.0 when I installed it.  This looks like a much easier way to manage my SnapVaults going forward.  I do have some questions:

1. What is the difference between a "transfer" and a "backup".  Documentation states:


Transfer = Transfer data from a source volume or qtree to a destination qtree


Backup = Create a backup schedule on a volume


This is no help,  as symantically, a backup is a tranfer of data.  All my current pre-system manager snapvault relationships appear as backups, but I went with Transfer on my new relationship.  It seems to be updating SnapVault properly, and creating a nightly snapshot properly.

However, the baseline snapshot is showing as busy.  Is this normal?


Can someone explain?
