Seed a snapmirror transfer with lrep

Hi folks,

We'll be replacing the filer in our disaster recovery site with a new one. This filer has 3 qtree snapmirror relationships with the primary filer at corp HQ. There's nearly 2 TB of data in these three qtrees, so copying the baseline over the WAN is not feasible and hence it's looking like lrep is my only option.

I've read that lrep can be used to copy the baseline transfer in this case. In looking over the lrep documentation however, it only gives examples on how to do this when establishing a snapvault relationship. Can anyone give me a step-by-step, or point me to a doc which gives the necessary steps to set up a snapmirror relationship using lrep to set up the baseline copy?

Thanks alot!
