Verify the cluster peer relationship and SVM peer relationship

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

Before you set up a volume for disaster recovery, you must verify that the source and destination clusters are peered and are communicating with each other through the peer relationship.

Procedure

  • If you are running ONTAP 9.3 or later, perform the following steps to verify the cluster peer relationship and SVM peer relationship:

    1. Click Configuration > Cluster Peers.

    2. Verify that the peered cluster is authenticated and is available.

    3. Click Configuration > SVM Peers.

    4. Verify that the destination SVM is peered with the source SVM.

  • If you are running ONTAP 9.2 or earlier, perform the following steps to verify the cluster peer relationship and SVM peer relationship:

    1. Click the Configurations tab.

    2. In the Cluster Details pane, click Cluster Peers.

    3. Verify that the peered cluster is authenticated and available.

    4. Click the SVMs tab and select the source SVM.

    5. In the Peer Storage Virtual Machines area, verify the destination SVM is peered with the source SVM.

      If you do not see any peered SVM in this area, you can create the SVM peer relationship when creating the SnapMirror relationship.
