Creating a Snapshot of Files on a C Series Controller


You can create one or more snapshots of the system software to serve as a backup. When you create a snapshot, the software backs up the operating system and the SRC software to a partition on the C Series Controller. You can restore the files in a snapshot to the system software if needed.

To create a snapshot of the system software:

  1. Verify which version of the software is running on the system.


    When you issue the show system information command in a virtualized SRC software, the manufacturer, version, and serial number details are not displayed in the output. In addition, the product name is displayed as vSRC.

  2. Enter the request system snapshot command. Use the verbose option to view information about the snapshot process.

  3. Verify information about the snapshot.
