Remote FlashCopy commands

Commands that are used to configure Remote FlashCopy relationships and to display Remote FlashCopy information are referenced. Remote FlashCopy commands are used to process what was formerly known as inband FlashCopy transactions. These types of transactions cannot be handled through the GUI.
