I am not ESERIES guy, but I found this information from NetApp Knowledgebase.  I advise, kindly verify the same by raising a ticket with NetApp. 

 

For disaster recovery (restore) : You will need configuration database (DBM) backup file. DBM database, includes data for RAID configuration, volume groups and disk pools.

 

Step 1: Save storage array DBM database:

Step 2:  Save storage array DBM validator information file
Technical support can use this XML file to generate a validator string (a security code). The validator string must be included in the load storageArray dbmDatabase command when restoring a storage array back to a pre-existing configuration.

Step 3:  Load(recovery) storage array DBM database:
