when I run "snapvault update src:src-tree", I am getting thefollowing error
"Transfer not initially successful, Retrying
Monitor progress with "snapvault status" or the snapmirror log"
Immediately if I run "snapvault status", it shows me "pending", then quickly becoming "idle" again
Could you please tell me how to fix the issue? what should I do now to update SV?
Thank you in advance!

Did you look at snapmirror log file to see what's going on.
Also, are you running this from the snapvault secondary? I tend to run snapvault update dst:dsttree
Sometimes if it flips to pending, there could be a locked snapshot, are you coming off a mirror?
Do snapvault status -l

This could be a number of issues. I would like to see a snap list on both the source and destination. I would also use the command snapvault destinations on both the source and destination and snapvault status on both systems.
When we snapvault from a SM destination we create a sv_daily snapshot schedule on the source and key the snapvault to that snapshot not the snapmirror snapshot. I am not sure how the NetApp software works because we don't use it.
