Snapvault: No releaseable destination found

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I am not able to release Snapvault destinations from my secondary filer.

output of snapvault destinations:

filer> snapvault destinations

Path                                          Destination
/vol/ossv_5/gbrlon05as035_c GBRLON05AS035:c:\backup
/vol/ossv_5/gbrlon05as035_f GBRLON05AS035:f:\backup
/vol/ossv_test/ossv-wastst-c OSSV-WASTST1:c:\Program Files\NetMeeting

But when i try to release the destinations, the outout is:

filer> snapvault release /vol/ossv_5/gbrlon05as035_c GBRLON05AS035:c:\backup
/vol/ossv_5/gbrlon05as035_c GBRLON05AS035:c:backup: No release-able destination found that matches those parameters.
Use 'snapvault destinations' to see a list of release-able destinations.

filer> snapvault release /vol/ossv_test/ossv-wastst-c OSSV-WASTST1:c:\Program Files\NetMeeting
usage:
On a snapvault primary:
snapvault release <primary_path> <secondary_filer>:<secondary_path>
On a snapvault secondary:
snapvault release <secondary_path> <primary_system_path>
        where <primary_system_path> is <primary_system>:<restored_path>

Pls help....

Re: Snapvault: No releaseable destination found

This seems to be due to the shell interpreting the \ character as an escape char.

Either try with "...c:\\backup..." or "...c:/Backup..." instead of "...c:\backup..." and see if that helps

Re: Snapvault: No releaseable destination found

Thanks buddy, this resolved the first 2 destinations but not the 3rd one. Have checked with all kind of possibilities. Pls help....

Re: Snapvault: No releaseable destination found

Seems I didn't make myself entirely clear :-)

You must replace every single \ character either by a forward slash / or by two backslash characters \\

One of these should work.

Since your SV relationship has another \ between the words "program files" and "netmeeting" you need to replace that one as well

oh and if you have spaces in the path name (which you do), you probably need to enclose the full FILER:PATH thing by "..".

that would make it

snapvault release /vol/ossv_test/ossv-wastst-c "OSSV-WASTST1:c:\\Program Files\\NetMeeting"

This should do the trick

Hi Michael,

Still the same.... No luck....!!!!

snapvault release /vol/ossv_test/ossv-wastst-c "OSSV-WASTST1:c:\\Program Files\\NetMeeting"

usage:
On a snapvault primary:
snapvault release <primary_path> <secondary_filer>:<secondary_path>
On a snapvault secondary:
snapvault release <secondary_path> <primary_system_path>
        where <primary_system_path> is <primary_system>:<restored_path>

Re: Snapvault: No releaseable destination found

OSSV-WASTST1:c:\Program Files\NetMeeting contains space which splits argument in two; so snapvault release command just sees OSSV-WASTST1:c:\Program

Try to either take the whole string in double quotes or explicitly quote space using backslash as well. Either

“OSSV-WASTST1:c:\Program Files\NetMeeting”

Or

OSSV-WASTST1:c:
Program\ Files
NetMeeting
