Easily convert a synchronous SnapMirror relationship to asynchronous

 

  1. Quiesce the synchronous SnapMirror relationship:
    destination::> snapmirror quiesce -destination-path vs1:vol1
  2. Delete the synchronous SnapMirror relationship:
    destination::> snapmirror delete -destination-path vs1:vol1
  3. Release the synchronous SnapMirror relationship on the source side with the option to retain the Snapshot copies:
    source::> snapmirror release -destination-path vs1:vol1 -relationship-info-only true
    Note: The default release operation (without setting relationship-info-only to true) deletes the Snapshot copies created by this relationship. This process does not allow a resync operation for a new relationship created for these volumes.
  4. Create the asynchronous SnapMirror relationship by specifying the required policy:
    destination::> snapmirror create -source-path vs0:vol1 -destination-path vs1:vol1 -policy MirrorAllSnapshot
  5. Resync the asynchronous SnapMirror relationship:
    destination::> snapmirror resync -destination-path vs1:vol1
