Applies to

  • ONTAP VASA Provider


This article covers the following scenarios where:

  • VASA Provider (VP) database has been wiped out through administrative action when it should not have been
  • The VASA Provider database has been corrupted. 

While it is highly unlikely that the VASA Provider database will become corrupted, it is possible to recreate the VP database from metadata stored in ONTAP

If the above scenario is not applicable to your own, please see the VASA Provider Disaster Recovery Resolution Guide
