Mounting a snapmirror destination volume readonly

Dan_in_WA

I have a source volume on a local filer that is setup for CIFS protocol and has a share with no qtrees. The volume is snapmirrored to a destination volume on a peered remote filer. Is it possible to have the destination volume on the remote filer be made available readonly so that people may access the share? I want the snapmirror relationship to stay intact. I did not want to clone the destination volume because I want the share to be available at all times.

 

The problem I am trying to solve is to make local files available at the remote location so they are not dragged across the WAN everytime.

 

Thanks

Yes, you can.

 

It's very common.

I dont believe you have answered his question.  Thus I do not believe you were helpful at all.. so no kudos warranted.

Yes, you can snapmirror and access the data at the second site without a flexclone.  Simply snapmirorr your data to the destination site, once the initial sync is done queisce the snapmirror.  Now you will need to mount the volume on the SVM and create a share.  Once that's done you can go back and resume the relationship.

Thanks for letting me know I am able to do this. Could you point me towards any documentation that would help me setting this up. I have not located any so far.

 

Thanks
