Our infrastructure is growing and i have the first problem with our naming conventions. That's why i would like to rename our vfilers on the storage, but all of them are in a dr-relation.
What i tried to do a rename on the primary site and it works fine actually, but the dr-vfiler still has the old name. That's not a huge problem at the moment, but when adding additional ressources to the primary vfiler, it's not possible to resync the destination anymore:
US-S004KAS> vfiler dr resync fsedulu-v001@us-s004mur
Cannot find local vfiler fsedulu-v001
Is there a way to rename a vfiler in a dr configuration, without rebaselining the complete relation?
thank you in advance!

save a copy of the target snapmirror.conf before the resync... it will update all volumes in the vfiler to a 0-59/3 schedule (blah) but easy to copy back the orginal snapmirror.conf after.

I tried the vfiler dr activate and received a configuration error, then the vfiler was removed. (I had not renamed the source vfiler).
So I'm assuming it's essential to rename the source vfiler first before starting this process.
