  • SnapMirror
  • ONTAP 9
  • Data ONTAP Simulator

Answer

  • SVM-DR is designed to be used in an A to B configuration
  • SVM-DR requires the source SVM of the transfer to contain subtype 'default'
Scenario:

A cascade of A to B, to C:

Cluster Cluster-A Cluster-B Cluster-C
SVM production secondary tertiary
 
Result
  • A to B are Mirrored using Type: SVM-DR

Cluster-B::> snapmirror show

Source            Destination Mirror  Relationship   Total             Last
Path        Type  Path        State   Status         Progress  Healthy Updated
----------- ---- ------------ ------- -------------- --------- ------- --------
production: DP   secondary:   Snapmirrored      Idle           -         true    

  • When a SnapMirror create is attempted for 'secondary:' to 'tertiary:' on Cluster-C, the following error displays:


Cluster-C::> snapmirror create -source-path secondary: -destination-path tertiary: -type XDP

Error: command failed: Vserver "secondary" is not a Vserver of subtype "default".
