Synchronous mirroring - What do I need to know before creating a mirrored pair?


Before creating a mirrored pair, make sure your environment meets the following guidelines.

  • You must have enough free capacity on the remote storage array to create a secondary volume equal to or greater than the primary volume that you want to mirror.

  • You must have two storage arrays.

  • Each storage array must have two controllers.

  • You must know the password for the local and remote storage arrays.

  • Your local and remote storage arrays must be connected through a Fibre Channel fabric.

  • You must have discovered the two storage arrays you want to mirror data between. Then, from Unified Manager, you select the primary volume's storage array and click Launch to open the browser-based SANtricity System Manager.
