- symclone -g TestDg create DEV001 sym ld DEV002Create 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 -precopyCreate 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 create DEV001 sym ld DEV002 -nocopyCreate 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 recreate DEV001 sym ld DEV002 -precopyRecreate 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.
