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.
- symconfigure -sid 1234 abortAbort a configuration session started earlier.
- 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 terminate DEV001 sym ld DEV002This 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.
