Quiescing mirror relationships

Use System Manager to quiesce a mirror destination to stabilize the destination before creating a Snapshot copy. The quiesce operation enables active mirror transfers to finish and disables future transfers for the mirroring relationship.

About this task

You can quiesce only mirror relationships that are in the Snapmirrored state.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) that contains the destination volume and click Protection.
  3. Select the mirror relationship that you want to quiesce.
  4. Click Operations > Quiesce .
  5. Select the confirmation check box and click Quiesce.
  6. Optional: If you are quiescing data transfers on an Infinite Volume, click Run in Background to run the operation in the background.
    It takes longer to quiesce data transfers of an Infinite Volume than of a FlexVol volume.
