Using VXFS Checkpoints

Checkpoints are Veritas Symantec terminology for snapshots

  1. cd /opt/VRTSvxfs/bin
  2. ./fsckptadm create ckpt-10AM /mountpoint
  3. ./fsckptadm list /mountpoint - to list checkpoints
  4. mount -F vxfs ckpt=ckpt-10AM /dev/vx/dsk/DG/volname:ckpt-10AM /mnt - to mount checkpoint
  5. umount /mnt
  6. ./fsckptadm remove ckpt-10AM /mountpoint

By default checkpoints are mounted read only but rw can be supplied as an option by using the -o flag
