7mode snapmirror version for source and destinations

HYPERHYPO

I'm aware of the rule that one's 7mode Snapmirror  destination ONTAP version must be higher than source, but wondering whether this applies to P number too ?

 

So, i have a large , thousands of users cifs / nfs filer running presently 824P4, which a slew of source snapmirror filers on 8.1.2P4. 

 

I'm in process of upgrading all of this estate and more to 824P6. 

 

Question is am i able to update my snapmirror sources to 824P6 and leave the single destination at 824P4 ?  

 

Would a difference in patch # break snapmirror ?

 

Thanks

Hi JC,

 

This rule applies to the major version of Data ONTAP. So creating a volume snapmirror relationship between Data ONTAP 8.2.4P4 and Data ONTAP 8.2.4P6 will work fine, as well as reversing the relationship.

 

You can even create a snapmiror relationship from Data ONTAP 8.2.4 to 8.2.1.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Cheers,

Dirk
