I've managed to screw up what I thought would be an easy process.
All of our volumes are SnapMirror'ed to another cluster. Occasionally we decommission a volume that is no longer needed.
We do this is a fairly cautious manner.
Our general process is:
- Ticket to remove decom volume comes in.
- We unmount / remove junction path
- Offline the volume
- Wait nTime
- Delete the volume
We are brand new to managing NetApp so we're sort of feeling stuff like this out for the first time. Unfortunately now that it's time to delete the volume, we're seeing complaints about the SnapMirror not being able to remove the destination or break the relationship.
Would someone be able to provide the general steps for decommissioning a SnapMirrored volume so that I can see what we are missing in our process?
