While trying to setup a mirror relationship at the volume level and trying to conform the relationship,
Here is the setup :
Destination System: fas980-rtp8
The hostnames of both the storages are resolved and pingable from the windows host which is running the netapp management console.
please let me know if i am missing something during this setup.

Try to ping the source system fas980-rtp7 from Destination System: fas980-rtp8 with its hostname fas980-rtp7.
If it's not reachable, try adding an entry in the /etc/hosts file to locally resolve it on the destination filer.

Yes,the ping works successfully to the destination and vice versa.The entries already exist on the source and destination on the /etc/hosts.
Have added the entries in the "hosts" file on windows server running PM too.
have tried SM on another source & destination volume pair on the same storage systems using the "snapmirror initialize" and it works perfectly.

Hi Sarbjit --
Adai is on the right track. The issue is the two storage systems talking to each other -- changing anything on the DFM station won't make a difference.
Try double-checking the snapmirror.access list on the source filer. Perhaps it is denying access. You can do this with the host diagnose wizard in NMC.
