I have two storage arrays today that performing SnapVault of a production volume hosting FCP LUNs for a VMware Infrastructure.
These two storage arrays are used for production and backups.
I have another storage array used for mockup/test envirronment.
I would like to transmit SnapVault secondary volume to this array with Async SnapMirror relationship in order to increase transfert speed from production to mockup.
I am not very familiar with SnapMirror but I saw that a volume SnapMirror destination is only read-only so I will not be able to perform a Lun Clone of a LUN in order to be R/W.
Do I have to perform a FlexClone of the full replicated volume in order to have R/W LUNs or does another feature is available to do what I want?
The mockup have all production testing environment ready and I want to map temporally replicated backup from production in order to perform VMware Storage vMotion of backuped VMs to the testing environnment.
