Create XDP Snapmirror using Powershell?

I'm attempting to create new snapmirror relationships with the XDP relationship type using powershell via New-NcSnapmirror.  However when I enter "XDP" as the relationship type, I get an error that XDP type is unknown.

 

DOT version: 9.1P15

 

Does anyone know the correct type?

Try "vault" without the quotes as the type  - this will create a version-flexible SnapMirror relationship (when it is paired with a version-flexible SnapMirror policy).

Hi,

 

The type for XDP is "vault". You can use "Get-Help New-NcSnapmirror -full" to view the possible options for the -Type parameter :

 

-Type <String>
Specifies the type of SnapMirror relationship. Possible values: dp, ls, vault, restore, transition_data_protection.

What volume type should I use?  Previously, I was using "DP" when creating the destination volumes.

 


-Type <String>
The type of the volume to be created. Possible values:

rw - read-write volume (default setting)
ls - load-sharing volume
dp - data-protection volume
dc - data-cache volume (FlexCache)

The volume type is still "DP".
