snaomirror resync in cascade
2013-06-27 06:42 AM
Filer A and Filer B (dr site)
Vols are being sanpmirrored from filer A (/vol/vol_a) to filer B (/vol/vol_b) on aggregate 0
I want to rebuild the aggregate0 on filer B, this case I thought of creating another aggregate on filer B (same filer).
1- snapmirror on filer B , that is snapmirror –S :/vol/volB filerB:/vol/voC
Then I want to break the snapmirror relation so the vol C will become unrestricted.
is it possible now that I can resync the relation from filer A to Filer B , but between Vol A to VolC?
snapmirror resync filerA:/vol/volA filerB:/vol/volC
I am not sure whether we can resync since I did not initialize this sanpmirror between A and C at the beginning.

Hi - in short yes you can do this. The fact that the initilization didnt take place between vol A and vol C shouldnt be an issue.
Either way you will have to initialise the first transfers, between vol B and vol C, or I would just suggest, if possible, you create a direct relationship between vol A and vol C.
Once these are initialised and fully replicated, then you can break the relationship between vol A and vol B and rebuild your aggregate.
