Volume SnapMirror while using volume autosize

I have NetApp volumes that I am SnapMirror'ing that are also autosized if the volume fills up. 

It is a manual process to grow the destination volume when the source volume automatically grows in size. 

Is there any way to automate this? 

So far I found found none. 

I was thinking someone had to have come across this before.

Re: Volume SnapMirror while using volume autosize

Yep, from what I can tell it is a common annoyance without a neat fix.

What I normally recommend is to make destination volumes way bigger than source & thin provision them (guarantee set to none), regardless of provisioning policy at the source.
