In a Volume Replicator environment, observe the following precautions:
Store the XML metadata file and other snapshot related files on a volume that is included in the replicated data set so that the metadata file is available at the secondary site.
Additionally, if VCS is used, store the metadata file on a volume in the cluster disk group associated with the Exchange database so that the metadata file is available from all nodes in the cluster.
During a point-in-time recovery, the volumes on the secondary site lose write-order fidelity. DCM automatically becomes active to ensure data consistency between the primary and secondary sites. While DCM is active, the volumes cannot be expanded by either manual or AutoGrow operations. You must perform a manual resynchronization of the secondary to deactivate DCM.
