create clone

create clone


The create clone command is used to create a clone.


create clone name=? lun_id=? [ clone_id=? ] [ is_immediately_available=? ]





name=? Name of a clone.

The value contains 1 to 31 characters including digits, letters, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).

lun_id=? ID of the primary LUN.

To obtain the value, run "show lun general".

clone_id=? ID of a clone.

The value is an integer ranging from 0 to 1023.

If this parameter is not specified, the system automatically assigns a value.

is_immediately_available=? Whether the clone is available immediately. If you select this option, when the clone pair starts synchronization, the secondary LUN is readable and writable immediately and data of the secondary LUN is consistent with that of the primary LUN when synchronization starts. If you do not select this option, after the clone pair is synchronized and split, the secondary LUN is readable and writable and data of the secondary LUN is consistent with that of the primary LUN when splitting finishes.

The value can be "yes" or "no", where:

  • "yes": The clone is available immediately.
  • "no": The clone is not available immediately.
The default value is "no".
