Check synchronous mirroring status


The check syncMirror command returns the status of a remote-mirror volume. Use this command to determine when the status of the remote-mirror volume becomes Optimal.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, and E5700 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800 or E5700 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.



In previous versions of this command the feature identifier was remoteMirror. This feature identifier is no longer valid and is replaced by syncMirror.

Parameter Description


The name of any remote-mirror volume. The remote-mirror volume can be the primary volume or the secondary volume of a remote mirrored pair. Enclose the volume name in square brackets ([ ]). If the volume name has special characters, you must enclose the volume name in double quotation marks (" ").


The time interval within which the software can return the remote-mirror volume status. The timeout value is in minutes.


This command waits until the status becomes Optimal or the timeout interval expires. Use this command when you run the Asynchronous Synchronous Mirroring utility.
