Editing mirror relationships

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to edit a mirror relationship either by selecting an existing policy or schedule in the cluster, or by creating a policy or schedule.

About this task
  • You cannot edit a mirror relationship that is created between a volume in Data ONTAP 8.2.1 and a volume in ONTAP 8.3 or later.

  • You cannot edit the parameters of an existing policy or schedule.

  • You can modify the relationship type of a version-flexible mirror relationship, vault relationship, or mirror and vault relationship by modifying the policy type.

  2. Select the mirror relationship for which you want to modify the policy or schedule, and then click Edit.
