Create a FabricPool mirror

Contributors

To create a FabricPool mirror, you attach two object stores to a single FabricPool. You can create a FabricPool mirror either by attaching a second object store to an existing, single object store FabricPool configuration, or you can create a new, single object store FabricPool configuration and then attach a second object store to it. You can also create FabricPool mirrors on MetroCluster configurations.

What you’ll need
  • You must have already created the two object stores using the storage aggregate object-store config command.

  • If you are creating FabricPool mirrors on MetroCluster configurations:

    • You must have already set up and configured the MetroCluster

    • You must have created the object store configurations on the selected cluster.

      If you are creating FabricPool mirrors on both clusters in a MetroCluster configuration, you must have created object store configurations on both of the clusters.

    • If you are not using on premises object stores for MetroCluster configurations, you should ensure that one of the following scenarios exists:

About this task

The object store you use for the FabricPool mirror must be different from the primary object store.

The procedure for creating a FabricPool mirror is the same for both MetroCluster and non-MetroCluster configurations.

Steps
  1. If you are not using an existing FabricPool configuration, create a new one by attaching an object store to an aggregate using the storage aggregate object-store attach command.

    This example creates a new FabricPool by attaching an object store to an aggregate.

    cluster1::> storage aggregate object-store attach -aggregate aggr1 -name my-store-1
  2. Attach a second object store to the aggregate using the storage aggregate object-store mirror command.

    This example attaches a second object store to an aggregate to create a FabricPool mirror.

    cluster1::> storage aggregate object-store mirror -aggregate aggr1 -name my-store-2
