Use all other Veeam functionality for your archival requirements. Or, less preferred, use NetApp storage snapshots integration for backup and replication jobs.
I could use a bit more help understanding this.
Right now we don't use snapmirror but are licensed for it.
We just use Veeam to replicate our NetApp FAS8020 VM's from one site to another site (which also has a NetApp FAS8020). So "clones" are sometimes made when we do backups of VM's that are on NetApp storage (when it doesen't error out which is most of the time, Case 01155095) but I don't think we utilize snapmirror at all. Should we?
