Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • SVM-DR
  • SnapMirror 

Answer

  • Yes,  the ACLs associated with files replicated by SnapMirror are replicated to the SnapMirror destination
  • Share-level configuration, part of the data SVM configuration, is not replicated by volume level SnapMirror
  • ACLs control access to the files, but the share-level configuration provides NAS protocol access to shared files
  • To replicate share-level configuration refer to Replicate an entire SVM configuration
  • There is no way to exclude the ACLs associated with files during Snapmirror replication
