We are using Virtual Storage Console (VSC) in VMware (5.5) for creating the snapshots (backup) on the primary storage. Since we still have 7-mode (no clustered yet) we cannot use SnapVault in VSC (not supported, only in CDOT). For the snapshots on the primary storage everything is working fine.
We have created manually a SnapVault relation ship to the secondary storage. We added a Transfer schedule on the secondary storage. Now we are getting the following error message:
"destination requested snapshot that does not exists on source filer"
But we are creating a snapshot around 10:00 PM on the primary storage system and a SnapVault transfer around 01:00 AM. What's going on here? Please advice.

Sounds as if snapshot autodelete threw away your baseline snapshot. You should always disable snapshot autodelete on the source volumes for SnapVault.
