Use Mirrorview with SRM without snapshots

I'm working on a MirrowView/S setup between a VNX5300 and a VNX5400.

When doing a test failover in VMware SRM I don't want to use snapshots on the VNX at the DR-site.

When adding the Mirrorview SRA in SRM I can provide the "MirrorView Options". Which option must I use to disable the use of snapshots?

Re: Use Mirrorview with SRM without snapshots

Hi Tom,

I doubt there an option to disable the use of snapshots in Test failover with Mirrorview in CX/VNX. Snapview enabler is a hard requirement to be installed in both primary and secondary arrays. 

If Snapview enabler is not installed, You will receive an error in Test Failover while running a real Failover should complete successfully.(assuming everything is configured properly).

For SYMM, we have other SRA options that can be utilized to disable the use of Snapshots in Test Failover.
