You're administering a 10GB volume on a test server that regularly receives new builds that replace most or all of its contents. The build currently under test has an issue that is in the process of being resolved, when a critical production issue arises. Within an hour, the test build you're working with will be overwritten by a copy of the production build, and your working volume under test will be overwritten by a copy of the production build, for its problem resolution. Given that you don't have time to synchronize a snapshot of your test build before it gets overwritten, what technique can you use to get a snapshot of the test volume ready to preserve the state of your test before testing gets set back a week by being overwritten by the production copy?


Options are :

  • Use the vxsnap make command with the plex option to convert an existing plex of the test volume into a snapshot.
  • Use the vxsnap make command with the cachesize=1g option.
