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.
