Breaking a SnapMirror relationship from the Volume Relationships page

You can break a protection relationship to stop data transfers between a source volume and a destination volume in a SnapMirror relationship. You might break a relationship when you want to migrate data, for disaster recovery, or for application testing. The destination volume is changed to a read/write volume. You cannot break a SnapVault relationship.

Before you begin


  1. From the Volume Relationships page, select one or more volumes with protection relationships for which you want to stop data transfers and, on the toolbar, click Break.
    The Break Relationship dialog box is displayed.
  2. Click Continue to break the relationship.
  3. In the Volume Relationships page, verify in the Relationship State column that the relationship is broken.
    The Relationship State column is hidden by default, so you might need to select it in the show/hide column list .
