I have successfully migrated a volume from source to destination filer. Then after that, I did quiesce and break, as well as release (from the source). However, the SM relationship is still there and shown as "broken off" after I run "snapmirror status" . How do I remove this line?
there is no definition in /etc/snapmirror.conf. I can not remove the base snapshot on the destination, because it is Production now after the migration.
Please help me out!

Right. I know it'd remove the line by removing snapshots. However, as I said, the destination is already in Production now. Would it cause any issues if I removed snapshots on the destination? and should remove all snapshots including the base?
Looking forward to hear you again.

Snapmirror snapshots have name pattern dest_name(sysid)_name.number. Of course, it may also be created manually, but I have never seen it.
I do not understand second question. What “rebase” means here?

My 2nd question is , if I remove the base snapshot, Do I then have to run the baseline (initialization) again?
I thought the baseline will create the base snapshot.

snapmirror snapshot is named as destfilerhostname(sysid)_destvolumename.number.
for 2nd question, i am not really sure the purpose of rebase. If the volume is already used as production volume, why do you need to re initialized.
However, the answer is Yes. You need to re initialized the snapmirror if you remove the base snapshot.
