Best way to create a copy of snapmirror destination for DR testing

Hi,

I currently have a three tier configuration

filer 1 -> snapvualt -> filer 2 -> snapmirror -> filer 3

I have purchased and added a new "DR" shelf and created a new aggregate of larger capacity to my snapmirror destination aggregate

I wish to create a copy of my snapmirror destination on this new aggregate so I can use it to perform DR a test. I want the original snapmirror destination to remain intact and continuing to snapmirror un-hindered by my DR test

What is the best method to do this?

The recommended way is to create a flexclone, which requires a license.  see section 8.2 of tr3446

ok, well Im not going to be buying a license just to make a copy of some data

as explained I have the space available for a raw copy and this is what I want, an actual copy of the data not a snapshot
