NetApp: Clone a SnapMirrored volume

We are trying to run a DR test. Are we allowed to create a clone of a volume while it's Snapmirror'ed?

If so how?

Sure.  Do you have a Flex-Clone license?

you can right click and "clone" in Netapp System Manager and then "Volume"  From there you can pick a snapshot to clone from or create a new snapshot.  Then you have to mount the volume and perhaps LUN if that is associated with the volume.

What type of volume is this.

Here's a bit about flex clone and use cases

These are NFS volumes (I believe FlexVols, but not 100% sure). Also, Thin Provisioned.

So you would create a flex clone then it essentially acts like a normal volume.  Create exports and add ACLs and you're all set.  When done offline flexclone volume and destroy.

Do you FlexClone from volumes or from snapshots?

Typically from a snapshot, if you do it from volume it will create a new snapshots but you have to remember to delete it once you're done.
