Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

Hello, we moved a volume over to another Netapp.  What do we do with the Snapmirror that is now showing 'Broken' which used to be in place?

Delete and reimage, then resync?  Or edit existing relationship?

Snapmirror command was used to move volumes over so that relationship needs to be removed as well...?

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

If you don't need to replicate back, or to a tertiary site then you can delete the snapmirror snapshots and that will remove the broken entry.  You also should edit the snapmirror.conf entries to remove the schedule. Be careful though in case you need to resync back or forward of if another 3rd site where there is dr or other replication.

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

What I do need to do is for the moved volume is to replicate that back to the DR site where it was formerly replicating before the move.

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

Snap list to check there is a common snapshot between the two systems. If yes the snapmirror resync on the target. If not you have to re initialize.

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

did you try snapmirror resync command ?

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

thanks for your help.

There looks to be a common snapshot ...448

I can resync that and go from there?

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

yes..be careful which side your resync though...the target will snaprestore back to that snapshot then roll forward from the source.

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

soo, I want to resync from the destination, correct?

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

Correct...the destination being the system that will revert back to the snapshot then match the source after update (losing all changes since the break)

Re: Moved Volumes - now Snapmirrors?

I tried and got this:

Cannot specify a snapshot to transfer when snapmirroring an entire volume.
