SnapMirror Update and LUNs in Qtrees

I have several LUNs in QTrees provisioned from within SnapDrive, they need to be in QTrees for SnapVault support. The volumes are SnapMirrored to a DR filer and I can update the replica from within Filerview. However the "Update SnapMirror" option is unavailable from with SnapDrive and I also cannot select Update SnapMirror from within SnapManager for Exchange when performing a backup. The icons in SnapDrive do not show the correct icon for SnapMirrored drives. If I move the LUNs to the volume root, "Update SnapMirror" is available.

Re: SnapMirror Update and LUNs in Qtrees

Which version of SnapDrive are you using? For a short time, SnapDrive 6.3.1 was available, but it has been pulled from the NOW site because of this bug with SnapMirror. If possible, revert to SnapDrive 6.3P2 (a patch release to 6.3): http://now.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/snapdrive_win/6.3P2/

I tested both versions myself, 6.3.1 definately has problems, 6.3P2 does not.

Hi, ah I am using SnapDrive 6.3.1.4912

SnapMirror Update and LUNs in Qtrees

Yes, that is the buggy version. 6.3P2 is 6.3.0.4813, that version works ok with SnapMirror.

Avbohemen, you're a wonderful man. I spent several hours on the phone to NetApp support yesterday with no resolution. Thanks very much
