Decrease the size of a cifs volume with a SnapMirror Relationship by shrinking it


I would like to shrink a cifs volume that has a SnapMirror Relationship Associated with it.  It does not contain Tier One Production Data, so we are okay with having to break the SnapMirror and recreating it if necessary.

What would be the proper procedures for doing this using OnCommand System Manager?

  1. Break SnapMirror
  2. Shrink volume by using the Volume Resize Wizard
  3. Create a new SnapMirror Relationship

I don't think you even have to break the mirror.

Shrink the source first, then the destination...
