No Relationships created when using PM

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to setup backup relationships between source volumes/qtrees in Protection Manager 3.7.1.

In my dataset I have source volumes and source qtrees, the protection policy of "backup", and destination resource pool.

Protection Manager is able to create the new volume in the resource pool on the destination filer but the relationship between source and destination is not created.

If I look in system jobs in Protection Manager, the job type "create relationship" is just sitting there with the status of "running" and the event description is:

Start creating relationship to sapfiler3:/dfpm_ds1_upgrade_SM_1237200044_3905215392.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

Jeff

Re: No Relationships created when using PM

Hi Jeff,

     Can you get the output of the create relationship job to know what is happening.

dfpm job list -d <dataset name/id> -t create_relationship

dfpm job detail <job id of the previous command output>

Re: No Relationships created when using PM

Hi Jeff

     Looks like the job is still runing.

Can you get the ouput of the following too.

dfpm dataset list -x <datasetname/id>

dfpm dataset list -m <datasetname/id>

dfpm dataset list -R <datasetname/id>

dfpm job list -d <datasetname/id> -x
