Remote Sanpshot copy

Hi,
For an example say that i am taking snap shot and replicating to remote volume through a schedule and all going well but one point in time the last snap shot replication got an interruption in network and could not complete the replication to remote volume, i mean middle of the way about 50% coping, what is my status of remote volume ? does it roll back to previous status or i have a corruption or incomplete volume ?
Thank You.

Re: Remote Sanpshot copy

Typically the remote snapshot would roll to an error condition. As long as the local snapshot that the remote was based on is available once network connectivity is restored, the snapshot should recover and begin transmitting again.

You could cancel the remote snapshot without any consequences midway through and there would be no corruption to the volume. If it errored out, it would be the same thing.

The remote volume would not roll back, neither would it be corrupt or incomplete. It would simply not contain the new snapshot.

Hope that helps.
