Releasing SVM disaster recovery relationships

If the SVM disaster recovery relationship is no longer required, you must release the SnapMirror relationship between the source and destination SVMs. By doing so, resources such as system-created Snapshot copies and configuration replication streams are deleted from the source SVM.

About this task

You must perform this task from the source cluster.

After the SVM disaster recovery relationship is released, you might not be able to re-create the SnapMirror relationship between these source and destination SVMs if there are no common Snapshot copies.

Steps

  1. If the SVM disaster recovery relationship is in the Snapmirrored state, break the relationship by using the snapmirror break command.
  2. Delete the SVM disaster recovery relationship by using the snapmirror delete command.
  3. Release the SVM disaster recovery relationship by using the snapmirror release command.
    You can use the -relationship-info-only option to preserve the Snapshot copies.
    Example
    source_cluster::>snapmirror release -source-vserver vs1 -destination-vserver dvs1
