Creating a volume SnapMirror relationship for a traditional volume

You can create a volume SnapMirror relationship for a traditional volume.

Steps

  1. To create a SnapLock Compliance volume, enter the following command:
    vol create vol_name [-L [compliance|enterprise]] ndisks[@disk-size]

    Example

    vol create src_vol -L compliance 3

  2. To create a SnapLock Compliance destination volume, enter the following command:
    vol create vol_name [-L  [compliance|enterprise]] ndisks[@disk-size]

    Example

    vol create dst_vol -L compliance 3

  3. On the destination system, to mark the destination volume as restricted, enter the following command:
    vol restrict vol_name

    Example

    vol restrict dst_vol

  4. To initialize the SnapMirror relationship between the source and the destination, enter the following command:
    snapmirror initialize -S src_system:src_vol dst_system:dst_vol

    src_system is the name of the source system.

    src_vol is the volume you want to copy.

    dst_system is the name of the destination system.

    dst_vol is the destination volume.

    Example

    snapmirror initialize -S src_vol dst_vol

    The snapmirror initialize command initializes the SnapMirror relationship between the source volume src and destination volume dst.
