Promoting a load-sharing mirror copy

You can promote a load-sharing mirror copy to restore the root volume of a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM).


  1. Use the set -privilege advanced command to set the privilege level to advanced.
  2. Use the snapmirror promote command to promote the load-sharing mirror copy as the root volume.
  3. Use the vol show command to verify the new root volume of the SVM.
  4. Use the vol rename command to rename the volume that was promoted as the root volume.
    For more information about these commands, see the man pages.


The following example shows how to promote a load-sharing mirror copy vol_dstls as the root volume of the SVM

cluster1::> set -privilege advanced

Warning: These advanced commands are potentially dangerous; use them only when directed to do so by technical support.
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y

cluster1::*> snapmirror promote -destination-path

Warning: Promote will delete the read-write volume cluster1:// and replace it with cluster1://
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y

cluster1::*> volume show -volume vol_dstls -instance

              Vserver Name:
              Volume Name: vol_dstls
	          Junction Path: /
              Vserver Root Volume: true
