Snapvault relationships frequently broken

Hi,

Our DFM system involves in automatically backing up 1700+ Windows hosts across 4 filers on daily basis. The whole data of a computer is being protected through snapvault relationships containing 2 physical drives and 1 systemState. As more and more hosts are provisioned onto our datasets lately, some of relationships are unable to achieve backup and become broken, saying "the qtree is not the source for the replication destination". See the screenshot below,

DFM version is: 5.1.0.15008 (5.1)

Any ideas of how to fix this? Much appreciated.

Re: Snapvault relationships frequently broken

Hi Brian,

     This error message comes from ONTAP. This means that a secondary qtree is being tried to replicate agains. Can you check if the relationships are fine ?

Can you try on the filer and see if you can run snapvault update for the same ?

Regards

Hi Adai,

Those relationships are broken and can't achieve backup anymore. I've tried on the filer but seen same error.
