Does Protection Manager have the ability to know that a SnapMirror relationship is over a "slow" link ?
Two sites Production and DR connect via 20 Mb Link.
Have a DataSet for CIFS shares that need to be mirrored daily, all works great. Even have provisioning manager setup so IT guys can create their new CIFS shares.
Problem- IT guy creates new CIFS share and dumps 100Gb of files into it, now I have 100Gb that needs to be mirrored to the DR site.
My intial thoughts are to create the snap mirror relationship manually and use SMTAPE or LREP to seed the DR site then import it in to Protection Manager.
Sort of defeats the purpose of Provisioning Manager ????
Please let me know if I have missed something

Then for now, until you finish the initial seeding, have only provisioning policy attached to the dataset and not the protection policy of MIRROR.So that PM would create snapmirror relationship.Once initial seeing is done, you can import all these snapmirror relationship into your dataset.
