Manage Netapp Volumes

In our new netapp deployment I am finding that some volumes should be replicated, some should not but there is no easy way for someone to know if a volumes was just overlooked and SHOULD be replicating or if this is not replicating on purpose.  

That said, is there a way to apply a description to a Netapp volume that is easily viewable in the OnCommand System Manager or - less preferrably - the CLI?  If not natively, is there a tool that can be used for this?  Thank you.

If you have Operations Manager/Protection Manager it can tell you this information and monitor lag, snapshot creation, etc..  Check if you have a DFM license this will let you know if you have this.

An easy way to find out is take a look at the snapmirror.conf file. This holds all the snapmirror relationships (if using Netapp to replicate) so you know which volumes should be replicated (or not)
