Hi

 

Are you trying to setup snapmirror replication across the filer ? If yes - Are you trying to configure for the first time ?

Please share detail informatin to suggest further....

Re: Snap Mirror abort : Couldn't write to Socket

Were you able to check the option snapmirror.access... legacy/all/hostnames?
Post its output and also output of snapmirror.allow file.
Do let me know are you using any snapcreator with https authentication.

Hi Sunil,

 

 

As Naren mentioned issue would be with 

 

snapmirror.access ( Should be changed legacy or hostname )

 

Make sure your destination has entry in the host files ( In case if you are not using any resolver ) and also make sure that dest controller is defined in the snapmirror.allow file ( can be found under /etc , whcih can be accessed from vol0 )

 

 

Ex:- snapmirror.access command

 

 

filerA>options snapmirror.access host=filerB,filerC  ( Can mention IP address as well )

 

Ex:- snapmorror.allow file 

 

filerA>rdfile /etc/snapmirror.allow

filerB
FilerC

 

 

 

 

Thanks,

Nayab
