Creating a Replica Copy for the NetApp Open Replication Feature

Create the replica copy for the NetApp Open Replication feature.

Before You Begin

To create the replica copy below, you must use a storage policy that does not have the OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM) information.

If you have not yet done so, create a storage policy with a snap primary copy. See Creating a Storage Policy and a Snap Primary Copy.

You can create only one replica copy for replication. If the storage policy has already a replica copy, then the Create New Snapshot Copy appears dimmed.


  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 Use Offline Replication if possible.
  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.
