Cloning a Volume from a Remote Snapshot


The time required to clone the volume depends on the amount of data stored on the volume and the connection speed between the two NAS devices.

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Storage/Snapshots.
  2. Select a thick or thin volume.

    The volume must have at least one snapshot.

  3. Click Snapshot, and then select Snapshot Manager.

    The Snapshot Manager window opens.

  4. Under Select snapshot location, select a remote NAS.
  5. Select a snapshot.
  6. Click Clone.

    The Clone Snapshot window opens.

  7. Specify a volume alias.
  8. Select a storage pool.
  9. Select Enable encryption during transfer.

    QTS encrypts the snapshot before sending it for additional security.

  10. Click OK.

QTS clones the volume and shared folders, and then displays a confirmation message.
