Volume Disaster Recovery


I am trying to do  a DR test for one volume in Netapp CDOT cluster. 

Can anyone help  me out with the steps 



What are your objectives from this DR testing ?
What are the front-end application's protocols using the 'Prod' volumes for?
Hopefully, you have all infrastructure (network/VLAN/hypervisor) in place to point the "clients" to DR volume (If disaster occurs and you happen to loose Prod site).


In any case, this is a very basic and yet well defined guide on DR testing.

Further, there is plenty of stuff around this on : NetAp KB & Documentation site, so just look up.
