Turning off scheduled updates for one volume or qtree

You can turn off scheduled updates for one volume or qtree, by editing the snapmirror.conf file.

Step

  1. Either delete the entry in the snapmirror.conf file or change the entry by:
    • Commenting out the entry by preceding it with a pound sign (#).
    Example
    systemA:vol0 systemA:vol1 - 0 23 * 1,3,5
    systemA:vol1 systemB:vol6 - 0 23 * 1,3,5
    #systemB:vol1 systemC:vol2 - 0 23 * 1,3,5
    • Putting a dash (-) in one of the schedule fields (minute/hour/dayofmonth/dayofweek).
    Note: Deleting or commenting out a destination or putting a dash in one of the schedule fields of a destination in the /etc/snapmirror.conf file does not prevent you from performing manual updates to that destination.
    Example
    systemA:vol0 systemA:vol1 - 0 23 * 1,3,5
    systemA:vol1 systemB:vol6 - 0 23 * 1,3,5
    systemB:vol1 systemC:vol2 - - 23 * 1,3,5
