SnapMirror replication workflow

For each type of SnapMirror data protection relationship, the workflow is the same: create a destination volume, create a job schedule, specify a policy, create and initialize the relationship.

Starting in ONTAP 9.3, you can use the snapmirror protect command to configure a data protection relationship in a single step. Even if you use snapmirror protect, you need to understand each step in the workflow.
