Delete a volume replication

This page provides instructions for how to delete a volume replication.

Before you begin

You can only delete a replication if its status is set to Stopped. When you delete a replication, it removes the replication relationship between the source and destination volume. After the replication deletes, both volumes continue to exist independently with the current data they contain.


When you delete a replication, NetApp Volumes also deletes the common replication snapshots of source and destination volume. You can't resume a replication relationship for the two volumes again but you can create a new replication with either of them. When you create a new replication, it creates a new destination volume as part of the process.
