Invert SVM-DR source an destinatination Cluster

Hi, can you help me with the problem I have?

 

We have 2 Clusters NetApp 9.8P13 in different sites and 2 SVM with SVM-DR configured (site1 PRD and site2 DR):

Site1:Cluster1:SVM01 --> Site2:Cluster2:SVM01-DR

Site1:Cluster1:SVM02 --> Site2:Cluster2:SVM02-DR

 

Now because to business requirement we need to invert the source and destination sites (site1 DR and site2 PRD) (no change to network settings because the SVM-DR is configured with identity-preserve true).

To do this I understand first I need to rename de SVM source and destination and then invert the relationship of snapmirror but i don't know how to do this?  Activate Destination SVM then reconfigure? and how reconfigure?

The configuration need to change to this:

Site1:Cluster1:SVM01-DR <-- Site2:Cluster2:SVM01

Site1:Cluster1:SVM02-DR <-- Site2:Cluster2:SVM02

 

thanks in advance!

Ansley, Sergey thanks for your reply's.

Finally I tested the procedures and was successful, the final procedures  was:

1.-Making SVM destination volumes writeable (SVMDR TESTING)

2.-Reactivating the original source SVM and reversing the SnapMirror (SVMDR TESTING)

3.-kb NetApp (If SVM name can be renamed directly where the SVM is a source snapmirror)

4.-kb NetApp (How to rename destination SVM of a SVM-DR)

5.-Clean-Up (SVMDR TESTING only in old_Dest_cluster [new prd_cluster])

This KB on renaming the SVMs might help:  How to rename destination SVM of a SVM-DR - NetApp Knowledge Base

 

Thanks

Basically the procedure would be the same as testing the SVM DR

https://kb.netapp.com/onprem/ontap/dp/SnapMirror/SVM-DR_Testing_Procedure

You only need to make 2 first steps

Making SVM destination volumes writeable

Reactivating the original source SVM and reversing the SnapMirror

 

Then you can rename yours SVMs
