Data protection mirror relationships for SVMs with FlexVol volumes

The cluster administrator can protect the SVM data volumes and configuration by creating a data protection mirror copy of the data volumes and configuration on a destination SVM on the destination cluster.

You can set up only intercluster data protection mirror relationships for SVMs with FlexVol volumes.

When the source SVM is unavailable, the cluster administrator of the destination cluster can start the destination SVM to provide data access, with minimum disruption.

When the source SVM is available, the cluster administrator of the source cluster can resynchronize the data and configuration from the destination SVM to serve data from the source SVM.

You cannot create fan-in, fan-out, and cascade chain SVM disaster recovery relationships. You can create only one SVM disaster recovery relationship for a source SVM and use one destination SVM for protecting only one source SVM.

The destination SVM cannot be a source of any other SVM disaster recovery relationship. However, the volumes in the destination SVM can be the source of SnapVault backup or volume-level SnapMirror relationships.

The SnapMirror relationship between the SVMs is also referred to as SVM disaster recovery relationship.
