Create a protection domain

You can create SyncIQ domains or SnapRevert domains to facilitate snapshot revert and failover operations. You cannot create a SmartLock domain. OneFS automatically creates a SmartLock domain when you create a SmartLock directory.


  1. Click Cluster Management > Job Operations > Job Types.
  2. In the Job Types area, in the DomainMark row, from the Actions column, select Start Job.
  3. In the Domain Root Path field, type the path of the directory you want to create a protection domain for.
  4. From the Type of domain list, specify the type of domain you want to create.
  5. Ensure that the Delete this domain check box is cleared.
  6. Click Start Job.
