  • symclone -g TestDg activate DEV001 sym ld DEV002
    Activate the clone session.This will make the traget devices in ReadWrite(RW) mode.If the session created with a "-copy" option(default create option is copy), this will start the background copy from source to target device.There won't be any background copy if the session created with "-nocopy" option.
  • symclone -g TestDg create DEV001 sym ld DEV002
    Create a clone copy session between the devices DEV001(source) and DEV002(target) in regular diskgroup TestDg. By default this will create a differentail session.That means, we can do a incremental recreate or restore later.This command will make the target device in Not Ready(NR).
  • symclone -g TestDg create DEV001 sym ld DEV002 -nocopy
    Create a "CopyOnAccess" clone session between the devices DEV001(source) and DEV002(target) in regular diskgroup TestDg.This wont start any background copying from source to target device even after activating the session.
  • symclone -g TestDg create DEV001 sym ld DEV002 -precopy
    Create a clone copy session between the devices DEV001(source) and DEV002(target) in regular diskgroup TestDg. This will start background copy from DEV001 to DEV002 after making the target device as NotReady(NR).
  • symclone -g TestDg recreate DEV001 sym ld DEV002
    Recreate a previously activated clone session.The session SHOULD NOT be created with a "-nocopy" or "-nondifferential" option.
  • symclone -g TestDg recreate DEV001 sym ld DEV002 -precopy
    Recreate a previously activated clone session.The session SHOULD NOT be created with a "-nocopy" or "-nondifferential" option.This will start an "incremental" background copy still keeping the target device in NR state.
  • symclone -g TestDg terminate DEV001 sym ld DEV002
    This will terminate the clone session between DEV001 and DEV002, deletes the pairing information from the storage array and removes any hold on target device.You have to 'Terminate' while the pair in 'Copied' state to get a fully valid data.
  • symclone -sid 1234 list
    List all the clone copy sessions in array 1234
  • symclone -sid 1234 list -copy
    List all the clone copy sessions with ongoing background copy in array 1234
  • symclone -sid 1234 list -file clonepairs.txt query
    Display the clone state information about the device pairs provided in file clonepairs.txt
  • symclone -sid 1234 list -nocopy
    List all the clone copy sessions with No background copy activity in array 1234
