Configuring a network Virtual Interface that will be used for SnapMirror replication

I need help configuring a Virtual Interface between a Primary and a Secondary sites. 

In the Primary site I have 2 IP addresses and in the secondary site, there are 4 IP addresses. 

This interface will be used for SnapMirror replication. Could someone please work me through this configuration, I'm new to Clustered ONTAP and still learning it as I go or point me to a document. We're still on version 8.2

Thanks

Here is the documentation with instructions for creating intercluster LIFs in ONTAP 9.2 and earlier:

You'll also need to create a cluster peer relationship between your source and destination clusters:

And a vserver (SVM) peer relationship between the source and destination SVMs:

This just covers the ONTAP components, it assumes that there is existing networking configuration for connectivity between sites, etc. 

 

Happy reading, let me know if any more questions come up!
