Activate the destination FlexGroup volume

Contributors

When the source FlexGroup volume is unable to serve data due to events such as data corruption, accidental deletion or an offline state, you must activate the destination FlexGroup volume to provide data access until you recover the data on the source FlexGroup volume. Activation involves stopping future SnapMirror data transfers and breaking the SnapMirror relationship.

About this task

You must perform this task from the destination cluster.

Steps
  1. Disable future transfers for the FlexGroup volume SnapMirror relationship: snapmirror quiesce dest_svm:dest_flexgroup

    cluster2::> snapmirror quiesce -destination-path vsd:dst
  2. Break the FlexGroup volume SnapMirror relationship: snapmirror break dest_svm:dest_flexgroup

    cluster2::> snapmirror break -destination-path vsd:dst
  3. View the status of the SnapMirror relationship: snapmirror show -expand

    cluster2::> snapmirror show -expand
                                                                           Progress

    ...

    The SnapMirror relationship status of each constituent is Broken-off.

  4. Verify that the destination FlexGroup volume is read/write: volume show -vserver svm_name

    cluster2::> volume show -vserver vsd

    vsd       d2           -            online     DP          2GB     1.55GB   22%

    3 entries were displayed.
  5. Redirect clients to the destination FlexGroup volume.
