3.2.1 Abstract Data Model
This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This specification does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behaviors are consistent with that described in this specification.
A client that interacts with the FSRVP server maintains the following metadata of the shadow copies created on file shares on the remote file server. The client persists this data in an implementation-specific configuration store.
