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.
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.
