Here is a CLI command to setup VNX Replicator replication.
For those that are not familiar with the product, VNX Replicator is an
asynchronous file system level replication technology that complies with
customer-specified RPO. Replicator is included in the Remote Protection Suite
and the Total Protection Pack for VNX systems. VNX Replicator provides
organizations with the ability to handle disastrous events by transferring NFS
and/or CIFS responsibilities to a disaster recovery site.
This command allows you to create a replication name and
pick a source file system, designate a separate source SavVol location (by
default SavVol is created in Storage Pool the Primary File System is a part
of), a destination storage pool for file, destination VDM, Data Mover
interconnects, necessary interfaces, and a RPO time of 10 minutes. The command
assumes the default SavVol location is used on the destination side but can
also be added in if a separate destination SavVol is to be used.
nas_replicate -create <name> -source -fs <filesystem>
-sav <SavVol Pool Name> -destination -pool id=<id of destination
pool> –vdm <destination VDM name> -interconnect <Data Mover
