Creating a Replica Copy for Asynchronous Data Replication

Create the replica copy for the replication feature.

Before You Begin

To create a replica copy, you need a storage policy with a snapshot primary copy. See Storage Policy - Getting Started.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies > Storage Policies.
  2. Right-click the storage policy, point to All Tasks, and then click Create New Snapshot Copy.

    The Snap Copy Properties dialog box appears.

  3. In the Copy Name box, type a name.
  4. From the Library list, MediaAgent list, Drive Pool list, and Scratch Pool list, select a library, a MediaAgent, a drive pool, and a scratch pool.

    Tip: Drive pool and scratch pool are not applicable for disk libraries.

  5. On the Array Replication area, select Vault/Replica.
  6. On the Copy Policy tab, in the Source Copy area, select the Specify Source for Array Replica Copy check box, and then select the primary snapshot copy from the list.
  7. Click OK.
