Can you ping the IP address of the source filer ok? If you have other snapmirrors running from this same filer, then its not an issue with networking or routing. snapmirror.conf configured wrong perhaps.? Check the entry
What errors messages are out putted to the syslog/console when the intialization fails? look in the /etc/messages file.

Agreed... Check the snapmirror logs and see if there's anything in there and check that the systems are permitted to talk to each other. You say you have an old/existing SnapMirror relationship - was it between these two systems or different ones? I'd also be curious about the network configuration in the environment (ie, any firewalls between the two systems)..

where ae the snapmirror logs? the old relationship is between the same systems but the volumes have been destroyed. Thee is no firewall between the 2 networks and both filers are pingable from each other

do a telnet to destination: telnet <destination> <port number>
traceroute to the destination from source and vice-versa
can you please sent the command you are using to create the relationship and initiate.
