If you are using MultiStore software, you can use SnapMirror to replicate data in the volumes of a vFiler unit, for disaster recovery. You can also use SnapMirror to migrate a vFiler unit from one system to another.
For more information about vFiler units, see the Data ONTAP MultiStore Management Guide for 7-Mode.
In a volume SnapMirror relationship, if you rename or move the destination volume or its vFiler unit and perform a snapmirror update operation, then the SnapMirror status entries and softlocks are locked and are not deleted from the source system. To delete these old SnapMirror status entries and softlocks, you must run the snapmirror release command on the source system.
