FabricPool source volume for SnapMirror Asynchronous


Hi Team,


Would there be any problems with this? The idea is to have 30 days of snapshots on both the primary and the secondary site, but the primary has an AFF tiering with a Snapshot-Only policy to a FAS object tier and the secondary is a FAS8200. Since SnapMirror is only sending changes, I'm assuming that the replication engine wouldn't have any issues with the cold data blocks in the object tier, but I want to make sure.

Correct. Supported configuration. However, there may be slowness reading from the cold tier on source side. Please plan accordingly for that when designing your storage setup.
