snapmirror does not re-read snapmirror.conf under 8.0.2

In 7G snapmirror.conf update usually took effect after couple of minutes (I believe, it was checked every minute). Under 8.0.2 snapmirror.conf changes apparently go unnoticed. I edited snapmirror.conf to disable schedule and continued to get messages on console about inability to transfer (why exactly is unrelated) every minute after that. Only after I quiesced and resumed transfer (QSM) did these messages stop.

Is it a known issue? Is there BURT for it?

Re: snapmirror does not re-read snapmirror.conf under 8.0.2

It was always every 2 minutes when the file was updated, but sounds like a bug if not reparsed in 8.0.2.  One trick we used if we didn't want to wait the 2 minutes (to check the syntax) was to issue "snapmirror on" which parses the conf file even if on already.
