SnapMirror Daily Activity


We will be having a daily Snapmirror activity for one of the host connecting to our FAS3240. Requesting to have a procedure and prerequisites on the snapmirror daily activity. Please refer to the diagram below for the sample representation of the daily activity.  


  •  We will be copying via snapmirror,  source /vol1/lun1 and /vol2/lun1
  1. Once done with the copy, vol2 will be used by Hosts2


For confirmations:

  1. Since vol1 and vol2 will be copied daily, snapshot will be allocated and will consume available space of vol1. What is the best practice for the available space of vol1 to prevent it to have out of space?


Hoping you could help me with this.

Thanks in advance!



Any update?


Thanks! 🙂
