Considerations for using SnapMirror for transition

You can create data copy schedules and customize the SnapMirror data transfers for transition operations without affecting the existing 7-Mode to 7-Mode SnapMirror or SnapVault operations.

Maximum number of concurrent SnapMirror transfers

During transition, the maximum number of concurrent SnapMirror transfers supported on the 7-Mode and ONTAP systems depend on the number of volume SnapMirror replication operations allowed for a specific storage system model.

For information about the maximum number of concurrent volume SnapMirror transfers for your system model, see the Data ONTAP Data Protection Online Backup and Recovery Guide for 7-Mode.

Data copy schedules

Using multiple paths for transition

You can specify two paths for transition by using a data copy IP address and a multipath IP address. However, both paths can be used only for load-balancing, not for failover.
