Hello thanks for giving me a chance to discuss in this forum
How to convert snap mirror replication from asynchronous mode to sync mode.......
Can i do it graphically? Or else do i need to login to console.....
In one of the forum , i saw editing snapmirror.conf will solve the problem. But how to edit it? i cannot find rdfile or wrfile command working,,,
Is direct editng file affects our prodcution environment or replication ?
Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated
thanks and regards
See The Solution
to converto a async snapmirror to sync mirror you can follow this guide:
You need to edit the snapmirror.conf (you can edit it via the c$ share, of the node, with es. notepad++) with this example:
systemA:volA systemB:volB - sync
There are many consideration and limitation to do the sync snapmirror, I suggest you to carefully read this documentation : http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3326.pdf
It means to say, suppose i am using two node cluster, how to can i access c$ of the node?
. At present i am login through console using putty with cluster management IP
cDOT does not support synchronous snapmirror at all.
You don't have sync option on Cluster data ontap.
Mine is ONTAP 8.3.2 , FAS2552 . sO yoy mean to say , that there is no sync mirror option in my configuration.
Cluster data ontap will not support for snapmirror sync.
"Synchronous SnapMirror" != "sync mirror". In cDOT you have option for SyncMirror, but you do not have support for Synchronous SnapMirror.
I think he is asking about snapmirror synchronous.
I was wrong to understand.
If the system is in Cdot snapmirror sync is not yet supported.
The only way to replicate data in sync mode between two site (with a specific configuration) is now the Metrocluster Cdot.
