7.3.3 and 7.3.6 should be compatible w.r.t. SnapMirror. If you describe your issues in more details, someone may be able to help.

Re: Snapmirror issues between Data OnTap 7.33 and 7.36

OK just to confirm everything :

For Volume SnapMirror

a snampmirror licensed on both controllers?

b options snapmirror.enable on for both controllers?

c options snapmirror.access set to legacy on source with an /etc/snapmirror.allow file containing destination's IP address (ie 10.136.191.5) ?

d destination vol created and restricted ?

e on destination run: snapmirror initialize -S source:source_vol destination:destination_vol then fails?

d verify with snapmirror status

If you open a CLI to both source and destination you will receive different messages which may help to troubleshoot this.
