How to use a secondary LUN in a remote replication?
In a remote replication, the secondary LUN and the primary LUN form a pair, and the secondary LUN backs up data on the primary LUN. ? By default, the secondary LUN cannot be accessed (read or written) by a host. If a request is made to access data on the secondary LUN, you can create a virtual snapshot for the secondary LUN, and then map the virtual snapshot to the host for access. ? When a primary LUN encounters a critical error and the services are interrupted, you must perform the master/slave switchover to switch the secondary LUN to the primary LUN, and then map the new primary LUN to the host for access. NOTE: For details on how to perform a master/slave switchover, choose Help > Help Topics on the ISM, and view the related help information.
