Suspending an SVM peer relationship

A cluster administrator can suspend an established SVM peer relationship whenever needed by using the vserver peer suspend command. For example, during the maintenance period, you might want to suspend the SVM peer relationship.

About this task

When you suspend the SVM peer relationship, any SnapMirror data transfer that was initiated before suspending an SVM peer relationship is not affected and the operation is completed. Any data transfer that was scheduled to run during suspension period will not get initiated.

Steps

  1. Use the vserver peer suspend command on either of the peered cluster to suspend an active SVM peer relationship.
    Example
    The following example shows how to suspend an SVM peer relationship:
    cluster2::> vserver peer suspend -vserver vs4.example1.com -peer-vserver vs0.example1.com
    
    Info: [Job 50] 'vserver peer suspend' job queued
    The SVM peer relationship is in suspended state.
  2. Use the vserver peer show command to verify the status of the SVM peer relationship.
    Example
    The following example shows how to verify the status of the SVM peer relationship:
    cluster2::> vserver peer show
                       Peer               Peer
    Vserver            Vserver            State
    -----------       -----------        ------------
    vs4.example1.com  vs0.example1.com   suspended
