In cDOT 8.3.x, Snapmirror relationships are established within the SVM itself. Going between 8.1.x, 8.2.x and 8.3.x it seems like there are some "cosmetic" differences between how snapmirrors are established and managed, but the SVM still owns the protection policy. This is the link to the 8.3 Snapmirror best practices guide:
the above output shows the SVM as well as the SVM:Volname, whereas as for as i understand it should be only SVM: but not with the volumes, if configured for SVM DR. a bit confusing for me to understand the Snapmirror configuration.
Nop Actually vserver snapmirror and volume snapmirror is slightly different : The first line means that you have a svmdr relationship. This relationship is holding all the relationship for the prod vserver. You can verify it by using this command: Snapmirror show -destination-path svm-dr: -expand
This command will give you all the detailled relationship under the svmdr replication
Also vserver snapmirror is using the vserver property "subtype" so can you send us the ouput of vserver show -field vserver,subtype
The dr destination vserver (on the DR cluster) should be reported as a dp-destination subtype.
