In the left pane of the Remote Copy window, there is a consistency group filter to list Remote
Copy consistency groups that meet your requirements. In the right pane of the Remote Copy
window, you can discover the properties of a consistency group and the Remote Copy
relationships in it. You can also take actions on the Remote Copy relationships and Remote
Copy consistency group. Click Not in a Group, and all the Remote Copy relationships that
are not in any Remote Copy consistency groups are displayed on the right.
Creating stand-alone Remote Copy relationships
To create a Remote Copy relationship, click New Relationship at the top of the Remote
Copy window (Figure 11-94 on page 460). A wizard opens and guides you through the
Remote Copy relationship creation process.
As shown in Figure 11-95, you need to set the Remote Copy relationship type first. Based on
your requirements, you can select Metro Mirror (synchronous replication) or Global Mirror
(asynchronous replication). Select the appropriate replication type and click Next.
