Initializing a vault relationship

You can use System Manager to initialize a vault relationship if you have not already initialized it while creating the relationship. A baseline transfer of data is initiated from the source FlexVol volume to the destination FlexVol volume.

Before you begin

The source and destination clusters must be in a healthy peer relationship.


  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 relationship you want to initialize, and click Operations > Initialize.
  4. In the Initialize window, click Initialize.


A Snapshot copy is created and transferred to the destination.

This Snapshot copy is used as a baseline for subsequent incremental Snapshot copies.
