SVM and resource pool requirements to support storage services

You can better ensure conformance in partner applications if you observe some SVM association and resource pool requirements that are specific to storage services: for example, when you associate SVM and create resource pools in Unified Manager to support a protection topology in a storage service provided by a partner application.

Some applications partner with the Unified Manager server to provide services that automatically configure and execute SnapMirror or SnapVault backup protection between source volumes and protection volumes in secondary or tertiary locations. To support these protection storage services, you must use Unified Manager to configure the necessary SVM associations and resource pools.

To support storage service single-hop or cascaded protection, including replication from a SnapMirror source or SnapVault primary volume to either destination SnapMirror or to SnapVault backup volumes that reside in secondary or tertiary locations, observe the following requirements:
