EMCMD <source system ip> CREATEMIRROR <volume letter> <target system ip> <type> [options]
This command creates a mirror between two machines, using the same drive letter on each.
The parameters are:
|<source system ip>||This is the IP address of the source system (see Note below).|
|<volume letter>||This is the drive letter that is being mirrored. This will be both the source and target drive letter.|
|<target system ip>||This is the IP address of the target system (see Note below).|
|<type>|| This is the type of mirror, where type is a single character:
A – Create an Asynchronous Mirror
S – Create a Synchronous Mirror
|[options]|| Optional arguments that specify behavior deviant from the norm. These can be OR’d together to create a set of options (add decimal values – for example, for option 1 + option 4, place a 5 in the command). They are:
1: Create the mirror without doing a full resync operation.
2: Do not wait for the target side of the mirror to be created before returning.
4: Create with boot-time restrictions in place – essentially treat the create as you would a mirror re-establishment as part of the boot process. This option will check to see if the remote system is already a source and fail the creation if it determines that it was a source.
