We have one server with partial failed job status.

It show a event error:

SAN:directory Primary directory server:directory is not ready for backup (SnapVaulted; Quiescing)

Have anybody any idea?

It's posted, thank for all Mike

Re: why "Not ready for backup"?

HI,

The Error could be possibly because the snapvault has not completed the update. The workaround would be try to do a snapvault update on the destination.  if it fails, try vault abort and try again. Once the snapvault shows (snapvaulted idle) you should be able to take the backup

snapvault status

Snapvault primary is ON

Source                                            Destination                                                              State   Lag       Status

source:/departamentos  destination:/...  Source  37:53:04  Idle

source:/home           destination:/....          Source  -         Idle with restart checkpoint

Any idea?

Sorry for mi worst English

Re: why "Not ready for backup"?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply , I belive that the issue is happening in /home directory and departmentos is fine. If this is the case then try to restart the snapvault or abort the snavault using the -h option this will make the snapvault to idle . Please find the explanation of the -h option

Any transfer with a restart checkpoint  may be restartable; to clear out the restart checkpoint and force any subsequent transfer to start with a fresh snapshot on the source,  you can use abort -h on the destination. The -h option specifies that this is a hard abort; the restart checkpoint will be cleared out in addition to the transfer being stopped.

Snapvault primary is ON

Source                                            Destination                                                              State   Lag        Status

ssccbilbao.iaj.junta-andalucia.es:/departamentos  IAJSAN02:/vol/vol_backup_bi/Backup SSCC Bilbao_ssccbilbao_departamentos  Source  110:09:06  Idle

Who is the  <dstfiler>:<dstqtree> ?

snapvault abort -h "IAJSAN02:/vol/vol_backup_bi/Backup SSCC Bilbao_ssccbilbao_home"

Could not find destination: IAJSAN02:/vol/vol_backup_bi/Backup SSCC Bilbao_ssccbilbao_home

Any idea?

Re: why "Not ready for backup"?

Hi,

This operation has to be done at the destination side. Please try the abort from the destination side. Also please confirm if the first volume works fine with the backup operation before trying to abort this volume

This may take a long time to complete.
