Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

Hello

folks. I need to remove a snapvault relations ship. Key here is that there is no relationship and was a typo when setting up the snapsched. no qtree exists for this relation ship and I wish to remove it

Thi smessage is taken from the log  output of sv-smvi as it would return a error code 21 as it would led me to beleive is due to the fact the line below does not exists as a relation ship but is a pain in the side some place where I need to remove it as mentioned was fat fingered when inititally configuring.

SnapVault relationship found (additional) (primary = uschisan01:/vol/DS_DT_101/, secondary = uschivsan01:/vol/dt_backup_sv/DS_DT_102_q)

Output of snapvault status:

uschivsan01> snapvault status

Snapvault is ON.

Source                      Destination                                State          Lag        Status

uschisan01:/vol/DS_DT_101/  uschivsan01:/vol/dt_backup_sv/DS_DT_101_q  Snapvaulted    37:44:46   Idle

uschisan02:/vol/DS_DT_201/  uschivsan01:/vol/dt_backup_sv/DS_DT_201_q  Snapvaulted    36:15:31   Idle

uschivsan01>

Also from the system manager you can see from attached screen shot that the qtree does not exist -

Is it in the schedule do I need to destroy the schedule and re create it? How do I remove it?

Also when i run the snapvault destination command on each filer it does not show either.

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

Can you try stopping the incorrect snapvault entry on the snapvault destination filer?

snapvault stop /vol/dt_backup_sv/DS_DT_102_q

This should remove any registry information left behind.

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

I tried that – I get the following:

Could not delete qtree: destination qtree does not exist

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

can you jump into the cli of your destination filer and type qtree show. Does the destination qtree exist ? double check that the qtree does not exist

Then check on your volume uschivsan01:/vol/dt_backup_sv for the snapvault snapshot, if it still exists delete the snapshot and then the relationship should disappear ?

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

Hi – I assume you meant qtree status as the command to type.. None the less it does not appear there. Also no snap exists to delete. Hmm very strange isn’t it.. ? ☺

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

what about on the source filer/volume, does the snapvault snapshot exist ?

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

No sir.

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

Have you tried the following on the destination:

snapvault abort -h dstfiler:/vol_name/qtree_name ?

Re: Pesky SnapVault relationship removal

I would try to recreate the missing qtree and then do a snapvault stop, so it can delete the destination qtree and remove the snapvault relationship from the registry.

Hi,

Sory for the late answer bu I  had the same issue. To solve it, I deleted all old snapshot and relation ship was removed itself.
