Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

You must quiesce and break the SnapMirror relationship to activate the destination volume. After quiescing, future SnapMirror data transfers are disabled.

Before you begin

The destination volume must be mounted on the destination SVM namespace.

About this task

You must perform this task from the destination cluster.

Steps
  1. Depending on the System Manager version that you are running, perform one of the following steps:

    • ONTAP 9.4 or earlier: Click Protection > Relationships.

  2. Select the SnapMirror relationship between the source and the destination volumes.
