Use SyncIQ to copy data within a cluster.

We have a small Isilon cluster running OneFS and we are using SyncIQ to replicate data from our production site to a DR site. One of the replicated file systems has a special requirement. The Business Unit would like to use the replicated data at our DR site to refresh a test environment. Thinking I could use SyncIQ, I setup a manual policy to replicated the data to a new location on the same cluster. The process worked fine except the test directory is now Read-Only. I know this is because I have a SyncIQ policy defined with this directory as a target. Once I delete the policy, the directory becomes Read-Write. Is there a way to get around deleting the SyncIQ job? Is there another option within OneFS to make a copy so I can refresh the environment?
