SnapMirror First Installation and Errors ...

Hie,

I have to install a snapmirror on one FAS2020A to a FAS2020.

I have create the relationship between two FAS, so when i try to initialize the snapmirror processing, i have an error :

SAN1-XXXX:vol1 SRV-BACKUP01:vol1 Abort (transfer from source not possible; snapmirror may be misconfigured, the source volume may be busy or unavailable)

So my vol to my destination is restricted ...

My source is authorized connect to my destination ...

So can you help to understand what is the problem ?

Thanks a lot !

Bests regards.

Hi

Couple of things which you should check:-

1. Data ONTAP version should be the same for source and destination systems.

2. Source and Target volume should be of the same size. (Target can also be 10% more than the source)

3. Check the parameter for options snapmirror.access

Hope this helps.

Hi,

DataONTAP in the same version 7.3.2

Source and Target exactly the same size ... 1To.

To show what i have in snapmirror.access i have to do this step ? -> rdfile /etc/snapmirror.access

If is it right, DataONTAP telle me "no such file or directory"

So can you detail different step to configure snapmirror ?

I have to mirror two volumes (vol1 and vol3), each volume is CIFS. This two volumes are on the same aggregat

Note : two volumes are flexible volume

My target is configured as the same as the source.

Two volume : vol1 and vol3 with the same size (1To).

When i initialize SnapMirror i have this error :

""SnapMirror Initialize failed : Snapmirror error: transfer from source not possible; snapmirror may be misconfigured, the source volume may be busy or unavailable""

So i have no idea ... Try to delete relationship and to recreate ... No works better ...

Thanks

Re: SnapMirror First Installation and Errors ...

The snapmirror.access information can be found by running "options snapmirror" from the filer command line.

Can you also post the syntax of your snapmirror initialize command?

Thanks, it works for me.

Just add my source as authorized and it works ...

In fact, Ip restrict was not enable, and for me any netapp filer can connect to my source, but it is not right ...

Thanks a lot
