How to start a SnapMirror relationship

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Data ONTAP 8 7-Mode


Choose whether you want to update the SnapMirror from within the vfiler context, or from within the physical storage system - Typically setup and administration through the physical storage system is simpler than using vfiler snapmirror, so if you are doing this for testing make sure you are doing a vol-> vol snapmirror and that it is in the pfiler.

Note: vol->vol snapmirror OR qtree->qtree snapmirror is supported, no combination of it is supported at all.
