Create SnapMirror Policy dialog box

The Create SnapMirror Policy dialog box enables you to create a policy to set the priority for SnapMirror transfers. You use policies to maximize the efficiency of transfers from the source to the destination.

Destination Cluster
The name of the cluster you selected in the SnapMirror tab of the Configure Protection dialog box.
Destination SVM
The name of the SVM you selected in the SnapMirror tab of the Configure Protection dialog box.
Policy Name
The name you provide for the new policy. Policy names can consist of the characters A through Z, a through z, 0 through 9, period (.), hyphen (-), and underscore (_).
Transfer Priority
The priority at which a transfer runs for asynchronous operations. You can select either Normal or Low. Transfer relationships with policies that specify a normal transfer priority run before those with policies that specify a low transfer priority.
Comment
An optional field in which you can add comments about the policy.
Transfer Restart
Indicates what restart action to take when a transfer is interrupted by an abort operation or any type of failure, such as a network outage. You can select one of the following:
  • Always

    Specifies that a new Snapshot copy is created before restarting a transfer, then, if one exists, the transfer is restarted from a checkpoint, followed by an incremental transfer from the newly created Snapshot copy.

  • Never

    Specifies that interrupted transfers are never restarted.
