Starting a FlashCopy mapping
Most of the actions of FlashCopy mapping can be taken both in the FlashCopy window or the
FlashCopy Mapping window. For the actions available in both windows, we show, in the
following sections, the steps in the FlashCopy window, although the steps would be the same
if you were to use the FlashCopy Mapping window.
You can start the mapping by selecting the FlashCopy target volume in the FlashCopy
window and selecting the Start option from the Actions drop-down menu (Figure 11-31). The
status of the FlashCopy mapping changes from Idle to Copying.
