Using SnapMirror replication between Element and ONTAP clusters

You can create SnapMirror relationships from the Data Protection tab in the NetApp Element UI. SnapMirror functionality must be enabled to see this in the user interface.

About this task

IPv6 is not supported for SnapMirror replication between NetApp Element software and ONTAP clusters.

Systems running NetApp Element software support SnapMirror functionality to copy and restore Snapshot copies with NetApp ONTAP systems. The primary reason for using this technology is disaster recovery of NetApp HCI to ONTAP. Endpoints include ONTAP, ONTAP Select, and Cloud Volumes ONTAP. See TR-4641 NetApp HCI Data Protection.
