Is there a problem when mirroring between a FAS3020 and FAS270?
I have some data in test on a FAS3020 and trying to mirror to FAS270 also in test but for some reason the mirror will not initialize. I have tried mirroring from FAS270 to 3020 and all OK.
Seems strange, all configure files look ok, OnTap is the same version, snapmirror.access is correct, well as far as i can see.
The message from the FAS270 (destination) is as follows:
"Transfer aborted: update from source not possible; snapmirror may be misconfigured, the source volume may be busy or unavailable."
Message from FAS3020 (Source)
"snapmirror: Access Denied from if = virtual_live, src ip = 10.10.x.y, dst ip = 10.10.x.y. Check options snapmirror.access."
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Welcome to the forum.
Sounds like your FAS3020 has multiple interfaces and the FAS270 is connecting to the wrong one.
Have a look at this for how to set the required interface.
Hope this helps

You need to make sure that snapmirror access is set properly on the source filer.You need to specify the destination filer ip address <src ip = 10.10.x.y,>
and the access at the source filer for the mirror volume should be configured.

The FAS270 was running multiple VLans in a sinagle VIF didn't think this would cause a problem when mirroring from the 3020 which was running one Vlan, makes sense why it worked in reverse. You reply did point me in the right direction.
