Creating SnapMirror and SnapVault schedules

You can create basic or advanced SnapMirror and SnapVault schedules to enable automatic data protection transfers on a source or primary volume so that transfers take place more frequently or less frequently, depending on how often the data changes on your volumes.

Before you begin


  1. From the SnapMirror tab or SnapVault tab of the Configure Protection dialog box, click the Create Schedule link in the Relationship Settings area.
    The Create Schedule dialog box is displayed.
  2. In the Schedule Name field, type the name you want to give to the schedule.
  3. Select one of the following:
    • Basic

      Select if you want to create a basic interval-style schedule.

    • Advanced

      Select if you want to create a cron-style schedule.

  4. Click Create.
    The new schedule is displayed in the SnapMirror Schedule or SnapVault Schedule drop-down list.
