ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

snapmirror mediator add

Create mediator config entry

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.


The snapmirror mediator add command configures the connection between a pair of clusters and an ONTAP Mediator. It is mandatory to initialize the ONTAP Mediator on one of the cluster peers before the SnapMirror Business Continuity (SM-BC) relation with policy type automated-failover performs a planned or an unplanned failover. You can initialize the ONTAP Mediator from either cluster. When you issue the ONTAP Mediator add command on one cluster, the ONTAP Mediator is automatically added on the other cluster.


-mediator-address <IP Address> - Mediator Ip Address

Specifies the IP address of the mediator.

-peer-cluster <text> - Peer cluster

Peer cluster with AutomatedFailOver SnapMirror relationships.

-username <text> - Username

User account at the mediator.

[-port-number <integer>] - Port Number

This optional parameter specifies the mediator service port number to communicate with the mediator. The port number must be in the range 1025 to 65535 inclusive. The default port number is 31784.
