Making the destination volume writeable

You need to make the destination volume writeable before you can serve data from the volume to clients. You can use the snapmirror quiesce command to stop scheduled transfers to the destination, the snapmirror abort command to stop ongoing transfers, and the snapmirror break command to make the destination writeable.

About this task

You must specify the Element source path in the form hostip:/lun/name, where lun is the actual string lun and name is the name of the Element volume.

Procedure

  1. Stop scheduled transfers to the destination: snapmirror quiesce -source-path hostip:/lun/name -destination-path SVM:volume|cluster://SVM/volume
    For complete command syntax, see the man page.
    The following example stops scheduled transfers between the source volume 0005 at IP address 10.0.0.11 and the destination volume volA_dst on svm_backup:
    cluster_dst::> snapmirror quiesce -source-path 10.0.0.11:/lun/0005 -destination-path svm_backup:volA_dst
  2. Stop ongoing transfers to the destination: snapmirror abort -source-path hostip:/lun/name -destination-path SVM:volume|cluster://SVM/volume
    For complete command syntax, see the man page.
    The following example stops ongoing transfers between the source volume 0005 at IP address 10.0.0.11 and the destination volume volA_dst on svm_backup:
    cluster_dst::> snapmirror abort -source-path 10.0.0.11:/lun/0005 -destination-path svm_backup:volA_dst
  3. Break the SnapMirror DR relationship: snapmirror break -source-path hostip:/lun/name -destination-path SVM:volume|cluster://SVM/volume
    For complete command syntax, see the man page.
    The following example breaks the relationship between the source volume 0005 at IP address 10.0.0.11 and the destination volume volA_dst on svm_backup and the destination volume volA_dst on svm_backup:
    cluster_dst::> snapmirror break -source-path 10.0.0.11:/lun/0005 -destination-path svm_backup:volA_dst
