How to use SnapMirror to replicate SnapVault data

The SnapVault secondary storage system carries out SnapVault operations on its sources as usual. Then on a scheduled per-volume basis, the system replicates the SnapVault data to its SnapMirror destination partner or tape backup unit.

In this configuration, SnapVault does not delete any Snapshot version on the primary storage systems until that version has been successfully replicated from the SnapVault secondary storage unit to its SnapMirror destination. This guarantees that a Snapshot version will always be retrievable even if the SnapVault secondary storage system is disabled.
