Creating a mirror and vault relationship from a destination SVM

You can use System Manager to create a mirror and vault relationship from the destination storage virtual machine (SVM). Creating this relationship enables you to better protect your data by periodically transferring data from the source volume to the destination volume. It also enables you to retain data for long periods by creating backups of the source volume.

Before you begin

About this task


  1. Click Protection > Relationships.
  2. In the Relationships window, click Create.
  3. In the Browse SVM dialog box, select an SVM for the destination volume.
  4. In the Create Protection Relationship dialog box, select Mirror and Vault from the Relationship Type drop-down list.
  5. Specify the cluster, the SVM, and the source volume.
    If the specified cluster is running a version of ONTAP software earlier than ONTAP 9.3, then only peered SVMs are listed. If the specified cluster is running ONTAP 9.3 or later, peered SVMs and permitted SVMs are listed.
  6. Enter a volume name suffix.
    The volume name suffix is appended to the source volume names to generate the destination volume names.
  7. Optional: Click Browse, and then change the mirror and vault policy.
    You can select the policy that has the maximum number of matching labels with the Snapshot policy that is attached to the source volume.
  8. Select a schedule for the relationship from the list of existing schedules.
  9. Optional: Select Initialize Relationship to initialize the relationship.
  10. Enable FabricPool-enabled aggregates, and then select an appropriate tiering policy.
  11. Click Validate to verify whether the selected volumes have matching labels.
  12. Click Create.
