Enable SVM protection on a FlexGroup volume

Contributors

When the SVM DR protection flag is set to unprotected on a FlexGroup volume, you can set the flag to protected to enable SVM DR protection.

What you’ll need
  • The SVM DR relationship between the primary and secondary is healthy.

  • SVM DR protection parameter is set to unprotected.

Steps
  1. Enable protection by using the volume modify to change the vserver-dr-protection parameter for the FlexGroup volume to protected.

    cluster2::> volume modify -vserver vs1 -volume fg_src -vserver-dr-protection protected

  2. Update the SVM at the secondary site: snapmirror update -destination-path destination_svm_name -source-path source_svm_name

    snapmirror update -destination-path vs1_dst: -source-path vs1:
  3. Verify that the SnapMirror relationship is healthy: snapmirror show

    cluster2::> snapmirror show

  4. Verify that the FlexGroup SnapMirror relationship is healthy: snapmirror show -expand
