Easily configure cluster and SVM peering in ONTAP 9.3
In ONTAP 9.3, you can use the generate passphrase feature to create a peer relationship with a cluster whose intercluster LIF IP addresses you don't know in advance. You can also “pre-authorize” peer relationships for multiple SVMs on the destination cluster.
This recipe highlights the steps below:
On the data protection destination cluster, create a cluster peer relationship with an unspecified remote cluster, and pre-authorize SVM peer relationships with the SVM “vs1” on the destination cluster:
2. Send the generated passphrase in a secure email to the administrator of the data protection source cluster.
3. On the data protection source cluster, use the generated passphrase to authenticate the source cluster to the destination cluster (make sure to authenticate the cluster before the passphrase expires):
