looks like source and target are associated via 'StorageSynchronized' relationship...

With all of these SMI-S questions, you have me very curious about what you're building, Dreamer

Hi Sean, to simply put - one can say a tool to do lun expansion automatically for VMAX storage systems using SMI-S provider.

Btw, Sean - your answer (https://community.emc.com/thread/175977) helped me a lot to get quick start. thank you

and yes, while doing this i took at quick peek at replication/copy profiles and felt very interesting - so just exploring/reading through to get better understanding to have concrete solution for snap/mirror/clone/srdf as well in future.

Regards!
