Mirroring aggregates

You can use System Manager to protect data and provide increased resiliency by mirroring data in real-time, within a single aggregate. Mirroring aggregates removes single points of failure in connecting to disks and array LUNs.

Before you begin

There must be sufficient free disks in the other pool to mirror the aggregate.
