Creating a FabricPool mirror

To create a FabricPool mirror, you attach two object stores to a single FabricPool. You can create a FabricPool mirror either by attaching a second object store to an existing, single object store FabricPool configuration, or you can create a new, single object store FabricPool configuration and then attach a second object store to it. You can also create FabricPool mirrors on MetroCluster configurations.

Before you begin

About this task

The object store you use for the FabricPool mirror must be different from the primary object store.

The procedure for creating a FabricPool mirror is the same for both MetroCluster and non-MetroCluster configurations.

Steps

  1. If you are not using an existing FabricPool configuration, create a new one by attaching an object store to an aggregate using the storage aggregate object-store attach command.
    Example
    This example creates a new FabricPool by attaching an object store to an aggregate.
    cluster1::> storage aggregate object-store attach -aggregate aggr1 -name my-store-1
  2. Attach a second object store to the aggregate using the storage aggregate object-store mirror command.
    Example
    This example attaches a second object store to an aggregate to create a FabricPool mirror.
    cluster1::> storage aggregate object-store mirror -aggregate aggr1 -name my-store-2
