  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8
  • ONTAP 9

Description

  • If your DP volume has never been in a SnapMirror relationship then it is possibly empty. If you need a RW volume type instead, simply delete and re-create it.
  • On the other hand, if your DP volume contains data that you would like to preserve (and allow RW access)
    then this volume has previously been in a SnapMirror relationship. SnapMirror is the sole entity responsible for populating the data in the volume. Therefore, the SnapMirror commands control access to data in the volume.
