Initializing mirror and vault relationships

You can use System Manager to initialize a mirror and vault relationship if you have not already initialized the relationship while creating it. When you initialize a relationship, a complete baseline transfer of data is performed from the source volume to the destination.

Before you begin

The source and destination clusters must be in a healthy peer relationship.

Steps

  1. Click Protection > Relationships.
  2. Select the mirror and vault relationship that you want to initialize, and then click Operations > Initialize .
  3. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Initialize.
  4. Verify the status of the relationship in the Protection window.

Result

A Snapshot copy is created and transferred to the destination.

This Snapshot copy is used as a baseline for subsequent incremental Snapshot copies.
