You answer System Manager does not support System Manager, I guess you mean SnapMirror
You mention Prov Manager, to do what? As I know Prov Manager it doesn't manager SNapMirror, Protection Manager can manage DR Failover but not Failback
So what is the good solution to replace BCO?

Your are correct, System Manager does not support SnapMirror. Sorry for the typo.
As for Business Continuance Option (BCO), I do not know that information and hopefully someone else will answer later on today. However if you search the internal web, I think you will find some answers like http://wikid.netapp.com/w/Storage_Management/Hel/BCO_features.

Yes, but FilerView can't manage resync reversed, that's mean we can't realize a FailBack via GUI
Exception: with VMware using SRM with NetApp FailBack plugin, but for all the other cases!!!
What's your opinion?

That’s the pretty nice use case. You should contact Protection Manager Product Management team with this requirement.
In my knowledge this feature requirement should be the best fit for Protection Manager.

Due to resource constraint, there is no plan to support SnapMirror in System Manager as of right now. We are
continuing evaluating the option and will update the field if things change.
For now, please continue use BCO option. If a customer owns BCO, it will continue function. Otherwise, the Protection Manager license will turn on BCO functionality.

Based on this post from Steve Klinkner back in April....
where in the "Coming Soon" section he says....
"Support for quotas and mirroring are two features that aren't yet in System Manager but will be, soon."
Has that been changed? (as I do have quite a few customers who would love to this support soon....those are two very frequent items that pull people back out of System Manager)
