process to delete the snapmirror and snapvault relation in Protection Manager

HI,

Is there a particular way to delete the snapmirror and snapvault volumes. I have set these up using the PM.

Thanks!!

HI,

  If its through PM, you should have a dataset for those relationships. One of the ways is to mark the relationship as external (i.e. relinquish the relationship). In this case, the primary and secondary volume shall be left untouched. Then you can go ahead and delete them.

[root@shoemaker-rhel6x64-01 ~]# dfpm dataset relinquish help

NAME

    relinquish -- mark a relationship as external

SYNOPSIS

    dfpm dataset relinquish { [ <destination-volume-name-or-id> ] |

        [ <destination-qtree-name-or-id> ] }

DESCRIPTION

    The relationship will be marked as external. Source and

    destination objects are left unchanged.

The intent is, if you want to use the same relationship you can goahead and import them on a later date.

However you also have dfpm dataset destroy:

[root@shoemaker-rhel6x64-01 ~]# dfpm dataset destroy help

NAME

    destroy -- destroy a dataset

SYNOPSIS

    dfpm dataset destroy [ -f ] <dataset-name-or-id>

DESCRIPTION

    If the dataset contains objects, datasets cannot be destroyed

    unless the -f flag is specified.

Hope this is useful.

Thanks,

  Arun

H Arun!

at the site I am automating mirroring the production data (datasets are the volumes having cifs shares) to DR and on the DR filer itself this is getting vaulted (primary being the mirrored volume).

Now once the policy is applied on these datasets, how to perform DR and also how do I retrieve the archived files.

Sequence of steps would be very helpful!

Thanks!
