Create SnapMirror Policy dialog box

Contributors bsandee2

The Create SnapMirror Policy dialog box enables you to create a policy to set the priority for SnapMirror transfers. You use policies to maximize the efficiency of transfers from the source to the destination.

  • Destination Cluster

    The name of the cluster you selected in the SnapMirror tab of the Configure Protection dialog box.

  • Destination SVM

    The name of the SVM you selected in the SnapMirror tab of the Configure Protection dialog box.

  • Policy Name

    The name you provide for the new policy. Policy names can consist of the characters A through Z, a through z, 0 through 9, period (.), hyphen (-), and underscore (_).

  • Transfer Priority

    The priority at which a transfer runs for asynchronous operations. You can select either Normal or Low. Transfer relationships with policies that specify a normal transfer priority run before those with policies that specify a low transfer priority.

  • Comment

    An optional field in which you can add comments about the policy.

  • Transfer Restart

    Indicates what restart action to take when a transfer is interrupted by an abort operation or any type of failure, such as a network outage. You can select one of the following:

    • Always

      Specifies that a new Snapshot copy is created before restarting a transfer, then, if one exists, the transfer is restarted from a checkpoint, followed by an incremental transfer from the newly created Snapshot copy.

    • Never

      Specifies that interrupted transfers are never restarted.

Command buttons

The command buttons enable you to perform the following tasks:

  • Cancel

    Discards the selections and closes the Configure Protection dialog box.

  • Apply

    Applies your selections and begins the protection process.
