Importing a data policy configuration

Contributors netapp-adityaw

You can import a data policy configuration from a file, modify the data policy, and then activate the changes in the SVM with Infinite Volume. For example, in the event of a disaster, you can import an already defined data policy to the secondary and modify the policy as required.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator or Storage Administrator role.
