I would like to setup snapmirror multipath/failover on my simulator 8.0. Can anyone provide me procedure/ doc for setting up snapmirror multipath.
I tried configuring multipath but failed. Below is snapmirror.conf entries.
netapp-02> rdfile /etc/snapmirror.conf
netapp-01=fail(netapp-01 netapp-source) netapp-01:test_vol netapp-02:sync_vol * * * *
e0a interface -- netapp-01 is hostname -- 192.168.10.10 IP Address
e0c interface -- netapp-source is hostname -- 126.96.36.199 IP Address
I configured two IP's on e0a, e0c on primary filer and made communication between these two. My intention is when primary interface(e0a) goes down, from secondary interface(e0c) the data should transfer to destination filer. I'm in a confusion how to make entries in snapmirror.conf file. I made entries in snapmirror.conf file which given above.
Then I initialized snapmirror, while the data is transferring I brought down the primary interface (e0a). The failover is not happening and the transfer was stopped. Below is the output of snapmirror status.
netapp-02> snapmirror status
Snapmirror is on.
Source Destination State Lag Status
netapp-01:test_vol netapp-02:sync_vol Uninitialized - Transferring (231 MB done)
can anybody sched light on this and suggest where am doing mistakes?
