Answer

Check Active IQ if this impacts your systems

The nodeshell option snapmirror.enable has no effect in any and all versions of clustered Data ONTAP.

sj_93cluster01::> run local options snapmirror.enable
snapmirror.enable            off

The recommendation is to keep this option default (disabled) in Clustered Data ONTAP. 
In clustered Data ONTAP, the SnapMirror operations are controlled by cluster shell commands 'snapmirror' and not controlled by the nodeshell 'snapmirror.enable' option.

So disabling or enabling this option has no meaning in clustered Data ONTAP.

Additionally, if you are planning to upgrade your system to ONTAP 9.3, ensure the nodeshell option 'snapmirror.enable' is disabled to prevent the possible effects of BUG 1125366.
