We have snapmirrored a few big CIFS volumes to DR site with SVM-DR relationship. Since the DR SVM offline, now we have to access CIFS shares on DR site but don't want to break the SVM-DR relationship. Is there any way we can do it?

We are thinking to create a new SVM on DR site, replicate all volumes to it locally. But these volumes are all on big capacity, not sure if this is a good idea. Can someone share your experience?

Hi:

 

Create a new SVM and use flexclone from the SVM-DR volume you want to access.
