Creating a consistency group relationship
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You must create a SM-BC consistency group which also establishes the synchronous consistency group relationship.
The following prerequisites and restrictions apply:
You must be a cluster or storage VM administrator
You must have a SnapMirror Synchronous license
The destination volumes must be type DP
The primary and the secondary storage VM must be in a peered relationship
All constituent volumes in a consistency group must be in a single Storage VM
You cannot establish SM-BC consistency group relationships across ASA clusters and non-ASA clusters
You must create the consistency group relationship from the destination cluster. You can map up to 12 constituents using the
cg-item-mappings parameter on the
snapmirror create command.
Create a consistency group and constituent relationship. This example creates two consistency groups: cg_src with constituent volumes vol1 and vol2, and cg_dist with constituent volumes vol1_dr and vol2_dr.
