About scheduling or creating a snapshot set

You can use the Enterprise Vault Snapshot Scheduler Wizard to add a snapshot schedule for all volumes of a selected component. The scheduler wizard enables you to automate the refreshing of snapshots according to the schedule that you define.

One snapshot set can have multiple EV components. You can also select multiple components that you want to add to the snapshot set.

See Enterprise Vault components supported by SFW.

At times you may want to create a one-time snapshot of a specific volume or volumes. You can do so using either the vxsnap command line utility or from the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) console using the Enterprise Vault Snapshot and Snapback Wizards.

You must use the Prepare command to prepare the snapshot mirrors before scheduling or creating snapshot sets.
