Scheduling SnapMirror transfers

If you want scheduled SnapMirror transfers, you can add a schedule to a mirror relationship after you initially create the relationship.

About this task

Unless you create and implement a schedule for SnapMirror transfers, you are limited to manually updating destination FlexVol volumes or Infinite Volumes with mirror relationships. The following are characteristics of adding a SnapMirror transfer schedule:

Steps

  1. Create the schedule you want to implement by using the job schedule cron create command.
    Note: You cannot use the job schedule interval create command to schedule SnapMirror transfers.
  2. Apply the schedule to the mirror relationship by using the -schedule option of the snapmirror modify command.
    See the snapmirror modify command man page for more information about the command.
