Initialize a consistency group


After creating a consistency group, you must initialize it.

Note This workflow applies to users in ONTAP 9.8 and 9.9. If using these ONTAP CLI commands beginning with ONTAP 9.10.1, they will still work to initialize a consistency group, however, is recommended that you manage consistency groups with System Manager or the ONTAP REST API.
Before you begin

You must be a cluster or storage VM administrator.

About this task

You initialize the consistency group from the destination cluster.

  1. Sign in to the ONTAP CLI at the destination cluster and initialize the consistency group:

    destination::>snapmirror initialize -destination-path vs1_dst:/cg/cg_dst

  2. Confirm that the initialization operation completed successfully. The status should be InSync.
