Configuring a network Virtual Interface that will be used for SnapMirror replication

Gabster29

I need help configuring a Virtual Interface between a Primary and a Secondary sites. 

In the Primary site I have 2 IP addresses and in the secondary site, there are 4 IP addresses. 

This interface will be used for SnapMirror replication. Could someone please work me through this configuration, I'm new to Clustered ONTAP and still learning it as I go or point me to a document. We're still on version 8.2

Thanks

Here is the documentation with instructions for creating intercluster LIFs in ONTAP 9.2 and earlier:

 

https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.exp-clus-peer%2FGUID-3E74D0DB-CA7D-437A-920C-CED37D55622F.html

 

You'll also need to create a cluster peer relationship between your source and destination clusters:

 

https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.pow-csp%2FGUID-4B31A233-E8DB-4509-B00C-2FE9E1A48CA2.html

 

And a vserver (SVM) peer relationship between the source and destination SVMs:

This just covers the ONTAP components, it assumes that there is existing networking configuration for connectivity between sites, etc. 

 

Happy reading, let me know if any more questions come up!
