Contributors Download PDF of this page

You can edit volume pair properties to change the replication mode of the volume pair relationship.

  1. Select Data Protection > Volume Pairs.

  2. Click the Actions icon for the volume pair.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. In the Edit Volume Pair pane, select a new replication mode:

    • Real-time (Asynchronous): Writes are acknowledged to the client after they are committed on the source cluster.

    • Real-time (Synchronous): Writes are acknowledged to the client after they are committed on both the source and target clusters.

    • Snapshots Only: Only snapshots created on the source cluster are replicated. Active writes from the source volume are not replicated. Attention: Changing the mode of replication changes the mode immediately. Be sure that you have coordinated these changes at both sites.

  5. Click Save Changes.
