Transitioning a volume SnapMirror relationship in a staggered configuration

Contributors netapp-ivanad Download PDF of this page

You can transition a 7-Mode volume SnapMirror relationship and retain the data protection relationship by transitioning the secondary volume before the primary volume. In this method, you set up a staggered SnapMirror DR relationship between the 7-Mode primary volumes and clustered Data ONTAP secondary volumes.

  • The primary and secondary clusters and SVMs must already be set up.

  • For establishing anSVM peer relationship when transitioning a volume SnapMirror relationship, the following conditions must be met:

    • The secondary cluster should not have anSVM with the same name as that of the primary SVM.

    • The primary cluster should not have anSVM with the same name as that of the secondary SVM.

    • You must have reviewed the information about preparing for transition.
