I setup the "Maximum Fan-In Ratio to a secondary volume" setting to 4 so that I can add multiple primary to a secondary volume.
I already have an existing snapvault relationship backing up all the contents of Profiler1 vol0 to DRfiler1. Now I want to add another primary volume from Profiler2 vol0. I edited my dataset to add another primary but it is telling me that I need to create another secondary volume.
What am I missing here?

Max fan-in ratio is only applicable to SV and QSM relationship which are qtree based. This options is not applicable to VSM relationships as they are volume based. What kind of relationship are you doing ? Is it VSM or QSM or SV ?
Here is a brief write up on Fan-In ratio.
Protection Manager supports volume fan-in to allow multiple source volumes to go to a single secondary volume. If fan-in is desired, the NetApp best practice is to set the fan-in ratio to four. Fan-In is only applicable to QSM and SV relationship and not for VSM or OSSV relationships

Thanks Adai for the detailed explanation. I was performing a SV. I got it to work, I just had to wait for the change in setting to take into effect. I set it to four in Operations Manager.
