SnapVault Flex Clone Read/writeable clone


When creating a flex clone with Qtree SnapMirror (QSM) (SnapVault destination volume) based on a snapshot newer than the base snapshot for the QSM/SnapVault relationship;the qtree will be cloned in RO mode.


Below is an example of what was encountered:


filer1*> snapvault status /vol/HSQLdst/data

Snapvault secondary is ON.


Source                Destination               State          Lag        Status

filer2:/vol/HSQL/data   filer1:/vol/HSQLdst/data  Snapvaulted    00:23:23   Idle


filer1*> snap list HSQLdst

Volume HSQLdst

working...


%/used       %/total  date          name

----------  ----------  ------------  --------

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 07:31  newer_than_snapvault_base_snapshot

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 07:06  filer1(0050420116)_HSQLdst-base.264 (busy,snapvault)

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 07:05  sv_hourly.0

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 06:05  sv_hourly.1

  1% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 05:05  sv_hourly.2

  1% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 04:05  sv_hourly.3



filer1*> vol clone create HSQLdst_c -b HSQLdst newer_thansnapvault_base_snapshot


filer1*> snap list HSQLdst_c

Volume HSQLdst_c

working...


  %/used       %/total  date          name

----------  ----------  ------------  --------

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 07:31  newer_than__snapvault_base_snapshot

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Sep 12 07:06  filer1(0050420116)_HSQLdst-base.264 (busy,snapvault)



the cloned qtree is created with the snapvaulted flag causing the lun within it to be R/O.


filer1*> qtree status HSQLdst_c


Volume   Tree     Style Oplocks  Status

-------- -------- ----- -------- ---------

HSQLdst_c          ntfs  enabled  normal

HSQLdst_c data     ntfs  enabled  snapvaulted



filer1*> lun show /vol/HSQLdst_c/data/data.lun

        /vol/HSQLdst_c/data/data.lun    4.0g (4301821440)    (r/o, online)


When using snapshot older than the base snapshot for the clone:


filer1*> vol clone create HSQLdst_c2 -b HSQLdst sv_hourly.0

filer1*> qtree status HSQLdst_c2


Volume                    Tree     Style Oplocks  Status

--------                 --------  ----- -------- ---------

HSQLdst_c2                         ntfs   enabled  normal

HSQLdst_c2 data                    ntfs   enabled  normal


filer1*> lun show /vol/HSQLdst_c2/data/data.lun

        /vol/HSQLdst_c2/data/data.lun    4.0g (4301821440)    (r/w, offline)

Cause


This is by design. The clone operation inherits the SnapVault/QSM base snapshot as busy, therefore,making the SnapVault property clone as RO for the specified qtrees.

Solution

To resolve this issue, use the older snapshot as the base snapshot for the clone. In this way the clone will not inherit the base snapshot for that relationship. Then the clone will be created as Read/Write (RW).

Removing Sysadmin Role from sa user

It is not possible to remove sysadmin role rights from sa user neither by using Management Studio nor by SPs.

I 've found an alternative way to accomplish this process.

1) Rename existing sa username by using the command below;

ALTER LOGIN sa WITH NAME = newusername

2) Create a new user account named sa

3) Assign appropriate Server Roles and Configure User Database mapping.
