Quotas are always disabled on a SnapMirror volume destination, regardless of whether quotas are enabled on the source volume. If you try to enable quotas on a volume destination, SnapMirror displays an error message. Quotas are not disabled on SnapMirror destination qtrees.
If the source volume or qtree and the destination reside on different storage systems
, and you want the same quota restrictions to be applied after you make the destination writable, the destination system must have an /etc/quotas
file that includes all the entries from the /etc/quotas
file used by the source system.
- If you use SnapMirror replication for data migration, you can copy the /etc/quotas entries from the source system to the /etc/quotas file of the destination system before you use the snapmirror break command to make the destination writable.
- If you use SnapMirror replication for backup and potential disaster recovery, you must keep a copy on the destination system of all /etc/quotas entries used by the source system at all times. That way, you can apply the quota entries to the destination volume or qtree if the source system becomes unavailable.
