SVM-DR browse snapshots on destination

Thomas_

Hi,

 

I'm wondering if it is possible to browse/access snapshots on a destination SVM-DR (while the destination if offline)?

 

Thank you!

If the volume is offline state, I don't believe so.

Is it possible to online the volume without causing a full SVM-DR switchover?

Basically we'd like to browse old Snapshots (which are already gone on the primary side) from time to time to restore a single file. How could you do that?

 

Thanks!

Did you find a way of doing this as I am looking for the same thing?

I believe you can create a clone of a SVM DR. This KB alludes to that: https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting%2FData_Protection_and_Security%2FSnapMirror%2FSVMDR_update_fails_due_to_Flexclone_creation_on_an_unpr... https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/bugs-online/product/ONTAP/BURT/1216096

 

You have to break the SnapMirror relationship temporarily, create the clone, break the clone, and then resync

the SM relationship
