Change a misconfigured SVM DR -identity-preserve setting to either True or False

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8
  • ONTAP 9
  • SVM Disaster Recovery (SVM DR) configured for one or more SVMs


  • SVM DR was originally created with identity-preserve set to true or false 
  • Some circumstances may require setting identity-preserve to the other value
  • To accomplish this, it is necessary to perform these steps on the SnapMirror destination:
    • Break the relationship with snapmirror break
    • Remove the entries for the relationship from the snapmirror and SVM DR tables with snapmirror delete
    • Re-create the relationship with snapmirror create, setting identity-preserve to the desired value
