Deactivate synchronous mirroring

The deactivate storageArray feature command deactivates the synchronous mirroring feature, disassembles the mirror repository volume, and releases the controller owner of the secondary volume.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, and E5700 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800 or E5700 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin or Support Admin role.


The controller host port that is dedicated to the secondary volume is available for host data transfers.

Note: In previous versions of this command the feature identifier was remoteMirror. This feature identifier is no longer valid and is replaced by syncMirror.
