After a week of testing the SVM DR feature (including some great assistance on these boards and with NetApp Support), I am ready to implement it on our CIFS Server SVMs. However, there are two things giving me pause. Does anyone have insight into these two issues?
We are on OnTAP 9.1P8. I plan to upgrade to 9.2 once P2 is released. I'm curious if the wording of the item in #2 above has been changed/improved in 9.2.
Any thoughts/suggestions are welcome!

For anyone who searches this topic, I ended up opting not to set up SVM DR at this time after testing and starting an implementation. There were too many buggy issues that came up, and I had somehow missed the fact that you have to duplicate every custom schedule on the source cluster at the destination. We have over 80 custom schedules and reguarly add / change them - I don't want a simple change in schedule to potentially break replication. Although I got clarification on the issues raised in this thread with a very helpful NetApp rep, my uneasiness only grew the further I got into it. I will keep watching Release Notes and may revisit this in the future.
