Managing stand-alone Remote Copy relationships
A Remote Copy relationship can be defined between two volumes, where one is the master
(source) and the other one is the auxiliary (target) volume. Usage of Remote Copy auxiliary
volumes as Remote Copy master volumes is not allowed.

Open the Remote Copy window to manage Remote Copy by clicking the Copy Services icon
and clicking Remote Copy (Figure 11-93).
Figure 11-93 Open Remote Copy window
The Remote Copy window (Figure 11-94) is where you can manage Remote Copy
relationships and Remote Copy consistency groups.

Chapter 11. Copy services 461
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.
Figure 11-95 Select the appropriate Remote Copy type

You need to select your Remote Copy auxiliary (target) storage system, the local system, or
the already defined second storage system as the Remote Copy partner. In our example
(Figure 11-96), choose another system to build an inter-cluster relationship. Click Next
to continue.
Figure 11-96 Select Remote Copy partner
The Remote Copy master and auxiliary volume need to be specified. Both volumes must
have the same size. As shown in Figure 11-97, the system offers only appropriate auxiliary
candidates with the same volume size as the selected master volume. After you select the
volumes based on your requirement, click Add.
Figure 11-97 Select the master and auxiliary volume
Chapter 11. Copy services 463
You can define multiple and independent relationships by clicking Add. You can remove a
relationship by clicking the red cross. In our example, create two independent Remote Copy
relationships (Figure 11-98).
Figure 11-98 Define multiple independent relationships
A window opens and asks if the volumes in the relationship are already synchronized. In most
situations, the data on the master volume and on the auxiliary volume are not identical, so
click No and click Next to enable an initial copy (Figure 11-99).
