Quiescing mirror and vault relationships

You can use System Manager to quiesce a destination volume to stabilize the destination before creating a Snapshot copy. The quiesce operation enables active data transfers to finish and disables future transfers for the mirror and vault relationship.

Before you begin

The mirror and vault relationship must be in a Snapmirrored state.

Steps

  1. Click Protection > Relationships.
  2. Select the mirror and vault relationship that you want to quiesce, and then click Operations > Quiesce .
  3. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Quiesce.

Result

If there is no transfer in progress, the transfer status is displayed as Quiesced. If a transfer is in progress, the transfer is not affected, and the transfer status is displayed as Quiescing until the transfer is complete.
