Converting a data protection mirror destination to a writeable volume

You can convert the destination volume of a data protection mirror relationship to a writable volume if you want to use that volume to serve data. For example, you might do this if you want to migrate a volume.


  1. On the destination Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), make the destination volume writable by using the snapmirror break command.
  2. Remove the data protection mirror relationship that the destination volume has with the source volume by using the snapmirror delete command.
  3. On the source SVM, remove the configuration information and Data ONTAP created Snapshot copies by using the snapmirror release command.
