Creating a dr vfiler using a current snapmirrored volume

Hi,

We have a vfiler on a FAS3140 and its volume is being snapmirrored to a secondary site (another FAS3140)

I'd like to create a DR vfiler on the secondary 3140 using the snapmirrored volume, but all I've come across so far is how to set up a dr vfiler and how it will initialise and transfer the primary vfiler volume data and lose the snapmirrored data if the vol is the same name (the vol name I need to keep the same to utilise all the current snapmirrored data).

As I'm new to this, what would be the best way to proceed.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Creating a dr vfiler using a current snapmirrored volume

What version of Ontap are you running?

You need to be at a certain level to use the -u function

vfiler dr configure -l root:password -e vifname:10.10.1.1:255.255.255.0 -u srcvfiler@srcfiler

We're running 7.3.3, and it does look like the -u switch is supported. After some googling, that option does seem like it'll do exactly what I need.

Thanks for the help there.
