We are using HNAS object replication between a HUS-VM and a HUS130. We have scheduled snapshot policy for each source filesystem which creates a snapshot every 2 hours and maintains 84 snapshots. We use object replication to transfer the filesystem every 15 minutes. I tried to create and schedule a snapshot policy for each destination filesystem, but it tells me that scheduled snapshot policy cannot be performed on a filesystem mounted as a replication target. However, do the snapshots that get created on the source get replicated along with the filesystem to the destination?
Also, I know you can create a snapshot policy on the destination and use it within the replication policy. This defines the number of snapshots that get retained. This creates a snapshot on the destination side. However, the creation of the snapshot is when the replication session starts so a new snapshot is getting created every 15 minutes. What I want to have on the destination is a snapshot that gets created every two hours and maintains a total of 84 snapshots; the same as the source of the replication.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
