Resuming SnapMirror operations

Contributors Download PDF of this page

After completing a nondisruptive upgrade, you must resume any SnapMirror relationships that were suspended.

Existing SnapMirror relationships must have been suspended by using the snapmirror quiesce command, and the cluster must have been nondisruptively upgraded.

  1. Resume transfers for each SnapMirror relationship that was previously quiesced: snapmirror resume *

    This command resumes the transfers for all quiesced SnapMirror relationships.

  2. Verify that the SnapMirror operations have resumed: snapmirror show

    4 entries were displayed.

    For each SnapMirror relationship, verify that the Relationship Status is Idle. If the status is Transferring, wait for the SnapMirror transfer to complete, and then reenter the command to verify that the status has changed to Idle.

For each SnapMirror relationship that is configured to run on a schedule, you should verify that the first scheduled SnapMirror transfer completes successfully.
