Setting Up Replication Workflow

The following table describes the workflow for setting up replication on your volume collections using the GUI:
Step Notes
1 Create a Replication Partner Create a replication partner and add it to the volume collection.
2 Configure Bandwidth Limitations for a Replication Partner  
3 Test the Connection between Replication Partners  
4 Add Replication to a Volume Collection (Optional) You can add replication to both the upstream and downstream volume collections if replication is not already enabled.

If replication is already enabled on both volume collections, you can skip this step.

5 Perform a Volume Collection Handover (Optional) You perform this task in a disaster recovery situation. It allows you to copy the current volume collection, move the copy to the downstream replication partner, and make that partner the upstream partner.
