Configure storage VM disaster recovery

Contributors netapp-lenida Download PDF of this page

You can create an storage VM disaster recovery (storage VM DR) relationship to replicate one storage VM configuration to another. In the event of a disaster at the primary site, you can quickly activate the destination storage VM.

Complete this procedure from the destination. If you need to create a new protection policy, for instance, when your source storage VM has CIFS configured, you should use System Manager to create the policy and select the Copy source storage VM configuration option in the Add Protection Policy window.
For details see Create custom data protection policies.

Steps
  1. On the destination cluster, click Protection > Relationships.

  2. Under Relationships, click Protect and choose Storage VMs (DR).

  3. Select a protection policy. If you created a custom protection policy, select it, then choose the source cluster and storage VM you want to replicate. You can also create a new destination storage VM by entering a new storage VM name.

  4. Click Save.
