Our infra is using NetApp storage (NFS) with VMware.
Whenever I perform 1st attempt Recovery in SRM, it appeared the errors,
Error: Failed to promote replica devices. Failed to promote replica device '//xxxxxx/xxxxxxx_vol01', SRA command 'failover' failed for device '//xxxxxx/xxxxxxx_vol01'.
The SnapRestore license is not present Ensure that the SnapRestore license is enabled.
When I perform 2nd attempt, it able to perform faiover to recovery sites.
Is there any idea? Why the 1st attempt need SnapRestore enabled?
SRM not only using SnapMirror?

A SnapRestore license is required on the NetApp system only NON-QUIESCED SMVI SNAPSHOT RECOVERY. This feature is not available in NetApp FAS/V-Series Storage Replication Adapter 2.0 for SRM 5. Refer the TR 3671
Hope this help.

I'm using NetApp FAS/V-Series Storage Replication Adapter 2.1 for SRM 5.5
However, when I perform recovery..
the error show that, i do not have the snaprestore license.
When I perform 2nd attempt, it can pass thru.
Any idea what's wrong? why snaprestore will use in this senario?
