Re: Help!Can root volume snapmirror to another filer?

Yes, that’s possible, exactly as you describe it. If you are going to remove single aggregate on FAS2020, you will need then to reinitialize it and do minimal setup, then after snapmirroring original root volume back mark it as root.

Hi aborzenkov

Thanks for your answers,

so you mean that  the if the root volume snapmirror back to the original,

it can be boot?

have you ever test before?

Re: Help!Can root volume snapmirror to another filer?

Once you snapmirror break, you can mark the volume root with "vol options volname root" then reboot.  Short downtime window and that volume comes back as root.
