Command for SnapMirror Break with Wildcard

GUNNAR75

Hello NetAppianer,

for a DR-Solution we need one command to break all snapmirror-destinations on secondary site.
Is it possible to break all Snapmirror-relations for a vserver or destination-cluster with one Command on cluster-shell ?

command like this:

destination-cluster::>snapmirror break -destination-vserver dr-vserver: -force

 

OnTap-Version: 9.1

 



kind regards

Hello, yes you can use wildcards in the snapmirror command...

 

cluster2::snapmirror> snapmirror break -destination-path svm_dst1:*
Operation succeeded: snapmirror break for destination "svm_dst1:vol2_dest".
Operation succeeded: snapmirror break for destination "svm_dst1:vol3_dest".
Operation succeeded: snapmirror break for destination "svm_dst1:vol4_dest".

Have you also considered using the Storage Virtual Machine Disaster Recovery (SVM DR) feature? This will allow you to SnapMirror the SVM (either with -identity-preserve set to true or false) from a single command, since all volumes owned by the SVM are managed by a single schedule and all SnapMirror commands apply to the SVM not individual volumes.

 

Note: However it is not compatable from SnapManager products, since the updates must be from ONTAP.

Hope this helps,

 

Cheers,

Grant.
