  1. From the system with the volume serving as the source, enter the following command:snapmirror destinations [-s] [volume_name]

The output for the snapmirror destinations command for such a cascade configuration is similar to the following:
systemA> snapmirror destinations vol1
Path        Destination
/vol/vol1   systemB:vol1->systemC:vol1->systemD:vol1
/vol/vol1   systemL:vol1->systemM:vol1->systemX:vol1->systemY:vol1
/vol/vol1   systemL:vol1->systemM:vol1->systemX:vol1->systemZ:vol1
/vol/vol1   systemL:vol1->systemM:vol1->systemN:vol1
Note: If you do not specify a volume name in the command, the output includes information about each destination volume on the system.
