OC5: DFMMonitor error: Invalid snapmirror schedule entry

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out why I see numerous errors in DFMMonitor.log file:

First, I can't determine on which storage controller that "error" was found.

Second, it seems to me it's a valid schedule definition, so why is DFM complaining about it?

Kind regards,

Michel

Re: OC5: DFMMonitor error: Invalid snapmirror schedule entry

Hi Michel,

     What version of DFM are you running ?  I completely agree that its really poor logging as it does not say from which controllers and it looks  a valid schedule as well.

Re: OC5: DFMMonitor error: Invalid snapmirror schedule entry

Hi Adai,

It's OnCommand Core (so version 5). I've advised customer to upgrade to 5.0.1, should be done tomorrow.

The errors lines I've mentioned in my original post make 90% of DFMMonitor.log file, any idea on how to get this fixed please?

Thanks,

Michel

Re: OC5: DFMMonitor error: Invalid snapmirror schedule entry


Hi Michel,

     Can you try and get me some more details for me. Like the output of the snapmirror.conf entries from which controllers you are getting this error.

Also details as to are these VSM or QSM if so are they being managed by Protection Manager or just being monitored in OC and are external relationship.

Regards

PS: I know that the logging is not specifying which controller it is, but with little work you should be able to find the filer based on the match between log error messages and snapmirror.conf.
