Creating a Remote Mirror in the MapR Control System

Complete the following steps to create a remote mirror from the MapR Control System:
  1. Log on to the MapR Control System.
  2. Check the Cluster Name (near the MapR logo). If you are not connected to the cluster on which you want to create a mirror:
    1. Click the [+] next to the Cluster Name.
    2. In the Available Clusters dialog, click the name of the cluster where you want to create a mirror.
    3. In the Launching Web Interface dialog, click that cluster again to connect.
  3. In the navigation pane, select MapR-FS > Volumes.
  4. Click the New Volume button.
  5. In the New Volume dialog, specify the following values:
    • Select Remote Mirror Volume.
    • Enter a name for the mirror volume in the Volume Name field. If the mirror is on the same cluster as the source volume, the source and mirror volumes must have different names.
    • Enter the source volume name (not mount point) in the Source Volume field.
    • Enter the source cluster name in the Source Cluster field.
    • To automate mirroring, select a schedule from the Mirror Update Schedule dropdown menu.
