Cloning a Block-Based LUN from a Remote Snapshot

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Storage/Snapshots.
  2. Select a block-based LUN.

    The LUN 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.
  7. Select one of the following:
    • Clone

    • Instant Clone

    The Clone Snapshot or Instant Clone Snapshot window opens.

  8. Specify a LUN name.
  9. Select a storage pool.
  10. Optional: Unlock the LUN.

    If the snapshot source is an encrypted LUN, you must provide the encryption password or encryption key file. When the new encrypted LUN is cloned, it will be unlocked.

    1. Enter the encryption password or upload the encryption key file.
    2. Optional: Select Auto unlock on startup.

      This setting allows the system to automatically unlock the cloned LUN every time the NAS starts, without requiring the user to provide the encryption password or encryption key file.

      You can change this setting at any time. For details, see Managing LUN Encryption.

  11. Optional: Select an iSCSI target.

    QuTS hero will map the LUN copy to the target.

  12. Select Enable encryption during transfer.

    QuTS hero encrypts the snapshot before sending it for additional security.

  13. Click OK.

QuTS hero clones the LUN and then displays a confirmation message.
