I have netapp box FAS2240-4 with 2 controllers (these 2 controllers are on the same chasis). Recently I upgrade one controller to 8.2.1 7-mode and keep the other one at 8.1.1P4 7-mode for testing purpose. And my existed snapmirror between the 2 controllers start to fail with the error message:
Data ONTAP API Failed :Snapmirror error: incompatible snapmirror versions on systems (Error: 13102)
Just wonder if the snapmirror support mismatch Ontap 7-mode version.

I'm assuming you're mirroring from 8.2 to the 8.1 filer?
they need to be the same . It use to work that you could mirror from a lower version to a higer but its been a while since i did snapmirror stuff.

I'm new to netapp, just wonder what is VSM and QSM. I think in my case I have VSM because I just check and notice that all the snapmirror from lower to higer work just fine. Only higher to lower has problem.

VSM = Volume SnapMirror
QSM = Qtree SnapMirror
Its all to do with whats being replicated, QSM allows a specific "directory" in a volume to be replicated. VSM Replicates the entire volume
