Archive or backup from a DDP volume
Posted by Andre Kuehnemund on 02 December 2019 18:05
When archiving or backing up data from a Ardis DDP volume (https://ddpsan.com/), please make sure you're selecting the correct mount point.  Do not select '/Volumes/ddpvolume/...'. Use '/Archiware/ddpvolume/...' instead.

Here's what the mount command executed on a test DDP device showed:

root@v4-archiware:~# mount

...

/dev/mapper/fsmap_drive-1 on /Volumes/ddpvolume type xfs (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota)

/dev/mapper/map_ddpvolume on /Archiware/ddpvolume type avfs (rw,relatime,avfs_addr=127.0.0.1,initiator_name=iqn.aw_smb,target_name=ddpvolume)

...


Notice the two different mount points, filesystems etc.


Here's an example of an archive job using '/Archiware/ddpvolume/...':

All good.
