Qtree quiescing

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I have a problem with some of my snapvault relatioships between Windows OSSV and qtree. After a WAN problem or somthing stop the transfert during a syhcnronization job, the relationship become quiescing and no way to come back idle or transfert.

I try a lot of things:

options snapvault.enable off

vol offline vol_name

vol onlie vol_name

options snapvault.enable on

snapvault start -r

I check for network issue.

Nothing....

In the log of OSSV (ossvinfo.exe) and output.txt, I can see:

2011/09/13 13:49:42: INFORMATION : QSM connection accepted from [::1] (inet6)

2011/09/13 13:49:42: ERROR       : Unexpected close getting QSM data

2011/09/13 13:49:42: INFORMATION : QSM connection accepted from 127.0.0.1 (inet)

2011/09/13 13:49:42: ERROR       : Unexpected close getting QSM data

Why 127.0.0.1 ? and why intet6 ?

before the qtree become quiescing, In the same log I can see:

2011/09/13 15:12:23: INFORMATION : QSM connection accepted from 172.22.9.4 (inet)

2011/09/13 15:12:24: INFORMATION : C:\ FAS2040:/vol/vol_name/qtree_name Transfer started between C:\ and FAS2040:/vol/vol_name/qtree_name

So when it's working, the connection come from the IP of my FAS2040. But when qtree quescing, the connection come from  127.0.0.1.

The only workaround I found is to delete the relationship and do a new baseline transfert. But the problem come back after few days.

Any idea to recover a quiescing relationship ?

thanks

Vincent

Hi Vincent

I have the same Problem since few days. Do you have found a solution for this?

TIA

Re: Qtree quiescing

Hi Thomas,

Maybe a silly thought, however - is there enough capacity on the destination volume? Maybe destination volume doesn't have sufficient capacity to rollback the interrupted transfer?

The most informative log to view is snapmirror.log located in etc/log folder on your destination storage system. In most cases when something goes wrong with snapvault you can find the answer there.

Also take a look in your Windows Application log, OSSV posts most errors there.

'snapvault.exe status -l' on the primary (OSSV host) will show the last error.

Re: Qtree quiescing

Hi chinchilla

Thanks for your help.  I have enough Space in the destination Volume (I have checked it).

The Message in the snapmirror log is:

Rollback_Failed (Cannot connect to source Filer)

On the same 2 Volumes I have also a Problem with NDMP incremental Backup with Backup Exec(DUMP: invalid inode ) So I think I have to open Case...

regards

Thomas

Re: Qtree quiescing

Hi chinchilla

It was definitely A sizing Problem. I have resized the 2 Volumes amply. Now It runs like a charm. The BackupExec Problem was a consecutive fault of the quiecsing State I think.

Thanks for your help..

Re: Qtree quiescing

Hi

Finaly: this message in the log comes after launch the "ossvinfo.exe" command to dump the log files before send it to netapp support...., so it was not an issue.

My relationships cames quieuscing with a particular firmware of my firewall Fortinet... :-(. After a downgrade, all work fine. But as soon as upgrade my firewall, the relationship comes quiescing.

Re: Qtree quiescing

Hi Vincent

In my Case the Problem was the following option:

snapvault.ossv.compression   on

I have changed it to off and since then the quiescing Problem was history :-)

Re: Qtree quiescing

To my understanding quiescing is a state that the destination qtree is in.. is because of a few reasons.. very basic of them are:

Snapshot count: if it increase above 255, the destination will always show as quiescing, if it comes to idle and you try an update.. you will again face the issue.

Volume size on destination: If there is not enough space left in the destination, it goes to the same quiescing state.

When you do a volume offline, is the volume becoming offline or giving some error..?
