SVM Relationships Window

You can use the SVM Relationships window to create and manage mirror relationships, and mirror and vault relationships between SVMs.

Command buttons

Create
Opens the SVM Disaster Recovery page, which you can use to create a mirror relationship, or mirror and vault relationship from a destination volume.
Edit
Enables you to edit the schedule and policy of a relationship.

For mirror and vault relationship, or version-flexible mirror relationship, you can modify the relationship type by modifying the policy type.

Delete
Enables you to delete a relationship.
Operations
Provides the following options:
Initialize
Enables you to initialize the SVM relationship to perform a baseline transfer from the source SVM to the destination SVM.
Update
Enables you to update data from the source SVM to the destination SVM.
Activate Destination SVM
Enables you to activate the destination SVM.
Resync from Source SVM
Enables you to initiate resynchronization of a broken relationship.
Resync from Destination SVM (Reverse Resync)
Enables you to resynchronize the relationship from the destination SVM to the source SVM.
Reactivate Source SVM
Enables you to reactivate the source SVM.
Refresh
Updates the information in the window.

SVM relationships list

Source Storage Virtual Machine
Displays the SVM that contains the volume from which data is mirrored and vaulted in a relationship.
Destination Storage Virtual Machine
Displays the SVM that contains the volume to which data is mirrored and vaulted in a relationship.
Is Healthy
Displays whether the relationship is healthy or not.
Relationship State
Displays the state of the relationship, such as Snapmirrored, Uninitialized, or Broken Off.
Transfer Status
Displays the status of the relationship.
Relationship Type
Displays the type of relationship, such as mirror, or mirror and vault.
Lag Time
Displays the difference between the current time and the timestamp of the Snapshot copy that was last transferred successfully to the destination storage system. Lag time indicates the time difference between the data that is currently on the source system and the latest data that is stored on the destination system. The value that is displayed can be positive or negative. The value is negative if the time zone of the destination system is behind the time zone of the source storage system.
Policy Name
Displays the name of the policy that is assigned to the relationship.
Policy Type
Displays the type of policy that is assigned to the relationship. The policy type can be StrictSync, Sync, Asynchronous Mirror, Asynchronous Vault, or Asynchronous Mirror Vault.

Details area

Details tab
Displays general information about the selected relationship, such as the source cluster and destination cluster, the protection relationship that is associated with the SVM, data transfer rate, state of the relationship, details about the network compression ratio, data transfer status, type of current data transfer, type of last data transfer, latest Snapshot copy, timestamp of the latest Snapshot copy, the status of the identity preserve, and the number of volumes protected.
Policy Details tab
Displays details about the policy that is assigned to the selected protection relationship.
