SMSQL stopped snapmirror updates

Hi Guys,

 

I have a strange one... On November 1, my SQL backups stopped mirroing to my DR site. The backup logs state "No volume found for mirror update". Yet, I can update the mirror manually with system manager and snapdrive on the box.

 

Here are the versions I am running:

 

Snapdrive: 7.0.3

Snapmamager SQL: 7.0.1

Ontap: 8.2.1 cDOT

 

Here are some snipits of logs:

No... in my case the mirrors are NOT updating. It appears to be a bug. My NetApp SE is looking into it. I will post if a resolution is found.

Re: SMSQL stopped snapmirror updates

How's your issue? 

 

I have same scenario as yours however we are in 7 mode. We are looking at upgrading to SMSQL 7.1P1 this spring in the hope to address this.

The newest versions of snapdrive and snapmanager seem to be working correctly

Cool!

 

Do you do a remote verification as well?
