21 Copyright 2015 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Snapshots that have linked targets cannot be terminated. One must first unlink the targets in order to terminate. Terminating a snapshot that has a restored session would require terminating the restored session first, followed by terminating the snapshot. TimeFinder SnapVX Operations

22 Copyright 2015 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. TimeFinder SnapVX is the underlying technology that supports emulation mode for TimeFinder/Clone, TimeFinder/Mirror, and TimeFinder VP Snap commands. These emulations will be completely seamless and will automatically be invoked when performing TimeFinder/Mirror, Clone, and VP Snap operations. Emulation sessions will copy data directly from the source to target without using snapshot deltas. Emulation modes will use legacy Source-Target pairing. This will provide backwards compatibility with existing scripts that execute TimeFinder command and control operations. When legacy TimeFinder commands are used, SnapVX sessions are created in the background. All existing restrictions and session limits for these emulations are carried over from the latest version of Enginuity 5876. Emulation mode will not support the storage group (-sg) option. VMAX3 volumes cannot be used as either SnapVX sources or link targets when participating in emulation sessions. Conversely, volumes cannot be used for emulation sessions when they are SnapVX sources or link targets. TimeFinder/Snap is no longer needed because of SnapVX point in time technology. SAVE devices do not exist in VMAX3 arrays. TimeFinder SnapVX Operations

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
