Managing the backup of a copied source volume

If you use the volume copy command to copy the primary volume of a SnapVault relationship to a different volume, Data ONTAP does not copy SnapMirror labels for Snapshot copies, and you lose the capability to back up from the primary volume copy.

About this task

You must add the SnapMirror labels back before you can back up the volume copy.


  1. Add the SnapMirror labels to the copied volume by using the volume snapshot modify command or by using the snapmirror update -s command.
