Help: How to clean up snapmirror on DR site, and restablish the replication?

Due to the corrupted snapmirror, we deleted the snapshot for the snapmirror on source filer. So, I need to start the replication over, and initilize the data.

Since the snapmirror snapshots are still there, what is the appropriate way to restablish the snapmirror. Do I need to delete all snapshots for the volume on DR site first? and what are next steps?  what is the command to do initial data transfer? Thanks for your help soon.

Is this a volume or qtree snapmirror?

Hello,

Snap mirror looks for a common snapshot so just resync it. If the resync fails You may need to initialize the relationship . This would be a last resort as all data will need to be replicated.

We are concerned  about the source volume, not the destination volume. We got source volume full , and not able to write any data for more than a day long, so, we are not sure if the source data are still vailid. Are they?

To release space, we removed the snapshot listed for snapmirror, and then initialized the data again.

are we doing correct?
