How to retain user quota information in a DR scenario

Hi All,

 

I have a problem you might be able to help me solve;

 

We have a DR scenatio with our newly deployed Clustered ONTAP controllers (8.3.2).

Each hosts some CIFS data with user quotas applied to a qtree in a data volume.

 

So SVM-A >> snapmirror >> SVM-B.

if SVM-A fails, we break the mirror and bring up SVM-B as the RW volume (swapping some DFS pointers to get the users connected again).

 

Q: How do I ensure that the quota Information held on SVM-A is also available on SVM-B?

 

You cannot create quota entries on a DP volume.

If the SVM-A is down - there is no source to copy the quota from.

 

Interesting no?
