SnapMirror uses configuration files, log files, and other files.
The following table lists the files used by SnapMirror, along with their corresponding functions:
|/etc/snapmirror.conf||Enables you to specify SnapMirror source and destination relationships, along with the following settings:
|/etc/snapmirror.allow||Enables you to specify the SnapMirror destinations that are allowed to copy from the system
Note: You can also use the options snapmirror.access command to specify the allowed destinations. However, if both the options snapmirror.access command and the /etc/snapmirror.allow file are used, options snapmirror.access takes precedence. This can affect the initialization of SnapMirror relationships.
|/etc/log/snapmirror.x||Records the SnapMirror data transfer history
Note: There might be one or more SnapMirror log files.The latest logs are stored in the file named snapmirror. The older logs are named snapmirror.0 and snapmirror.1.
|/etc/hosts||Uses entries in this file to resolve host names|
