SVM DR Assistance performing Cutover


Hello Community!


I'm new to WFA 4.0 and i'm in need of some assistance. 


Is there an ability to perform these SVM-DR scenarios with the workflows that come with WFA 4.0?


Scenario 1:

 - Would like to cutover from SVM_Prod to SVM_DR for CIFS, NFS, iSCSI

Scenario 2:

 - Would like to be able to cutover from SVM_DR to SVM_Prod without Re-Sync

Scenario 3:

 - Would like to be able to cutover from SVM_DR to SVM_Prod with Re-Sync

Scenario 4:

 - Would like to be able to Re-Sync specific Snapmirrors


If WFA does not have these canned workflows, does anyone have any insight on how i can go about creating them. i'm not a scripter so not sure how well i'll fair with the workflow dev side but any help would be greatful, thanks!



WFA has these in the "data protection" category.  The work flow is called "Activate the Destination Storage Virtual Machine"  there are bunch of workflows to work from in the  "data protection" category.  


Apart from these NetApp Professional Services have developed many different flavours

of the SVM DR workflow.
