Initialization of a SnapMirror destination from tape

You can initialize a SnapMirror destination volume from tape using the smtape backup command on the source volume and the smtape restore command on the destination volume.

The smtape backup and smtape restore functions are valid for volumes, but not for qtrees in a SnapMirror relationship.

For more information about smtape commands, see the Data ONTAP Data Protection Tape Backup and Recovery Guide for 7-Mode.
