I have two filer and make a snapmirror replication,
but I get a message log recently[Snapmirror:Clock on source is ahead of destination system],
What will it affect?
And how should I need to do to correct?

I'm not sure off the top of my head if that should prevent the replication occurring.....
.....but regardless, you should ensure your FAS controllers have the right time & timezone settings applied: most people would link to an NTP (network time protocol) server/service. Should be in the main System Admin Guide on the support site for your ONTAP version.

It will not "truly" affect much. However there are two important areas to note. The system will still mirror the data.
The destination will be replicating at the time it has set, so if your replication is time sensitive, you need them in sync.
Mirrors need to be in sync every 15 minutes after a data dump/load
SystemA has time 00:13:00 Source- Read/Write
SystemB has time 00:16:00 Destination - Read Only
You expect the replication to occur in 2 minutes, however the destination controls the mirror, it won't actually occur for 14 more
Also snapmirror status can actually show negative results depending on which system has the time lagging.
