How to schedule Snapshot script for daily tasks

Dear Team,

We have around 110 windows 2003/2008 Servers configured with SAN boot in CX4_480 Storage.

Currently I am using clone option  which is consuming  space equivalent to OS Luns. If incase , OS Lun is corrupted , the same has been replicated to Clone Lun as well  and it leads to loss of productivity.

Can you First Let us know the recommended method for OS Lun   ->Clone  or Snapshot

If snapshot is fine

I need help to configure snapshot script for below requirement, so that I am able to get last known good point in time Lun copy.

1)     1)  Snapshot of C drive for all  servers has to get created  every day 6 PM using script

2)   2)    Snapshots which are older than 2 Days has to be automatically  get deleted using script  without effecting production server

Re: How to schedule Snapshot script for daily tasks

take a look at SnapView cli guide

https://powerlink.emc.com/nsepn/webapps/btg548664833igtcuup4826/km/live1/en_US/Offering_Technical/Te...

all the commands are there, you just need to write a script that will execute those command and some logic based on your requirements.
