Snaplock Compliance SLC volumes being moved and volume snapmirror VSM relationships will break

I am moving shelves containing 7-mode snaplock compliance volumes to another 7-mode ha pair that already has snaplock compliance configured.

I expect no issues with the move, and expect the volumes to show up as snaplock compliance volumes on the new filers.

The SLC volumes are sources for VSM relationships.

The source will move but the data and base snapshots will remain the same.

Can the relationship be modified to point to the new location of the source?

or will they need to be snapmirror break  and left as a SLC copy of the SLC source volume on the VSM destination?

Hi,

 

Breaking Volume SnapMirror relationship of a SnapLock Compliance(SLC) volume causes 
 the data in the destination volume to be locked for the duration of the 
 retention period. Hence reinitialization or resynchronization to the destination 
 volume is not allowed until the end of the retention period.
