i have faced a problem with snappmirror.
we have 2 x fas2020 ontap 7.3.3, and snapmirror working fine in both directions
we have bought one FAS2240-2 and one Fas 2240-4 v.184.108.40.206 and snapmirror working fine in both directions
But when i set up a snapmirror from one fas2020 as source to a Fas2240-4 i got the error:
snapmirror error could not read from socket (error 13102)
snapmirror.src.sockErr Access denied for SnapMirror/SnapVault destination.
i looked at the host files and se there are no missmatch.
the options look like:
|san1 (FAS2020)||san2 (FAS2020)||san4 (FAS2240-4)|
snapmirror.access legacy (but if i set to lhost=san1 the result is the same)
san4> snapmirror status
Snapmirror is on.
Source Destination State Lag Status
san1:Test_for_cifs san4:test_second_snap Uninitialized - Idle
san1 have a snapmirror.allow file and it look like:
san2 have no snapmirror.allow file
san4 have no snapmirror.allow file.
Anyone have any idea what can be wrong?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Thanks for answer!
now i put san4 to the snapmirror.allow file for SAN1 so it look as shown now! becouse i need both san2 and san4 to be able to sync the data with san1. the content of file was :
and i put san4 int´a new line so it become:
and the result is the same, and get the same error.

Just to be certain, I don't think you want host names in your snapmirror.allow unless they are defined in your /etc/hosts. Try this just to make sure:
10.10.10.20 # Assuming this is for SAN2
10.10.10.44 # Assuming this is for SAN4

Another question: Do you have any firewalls or routers between SAN1 and SAN4? Can you verify something in the middle isn't stopping SM traffic between the two?

I solved it, changed options snapmirror.access to legacy and it solved the problem.
The host file was correct and the dest.filer were defined in snapmirror.allow
