I have a workflow that uses 'Transfer Snapmirror', with the next step being 'create CIFS share'. I currently have a powershell sleep command built into the CIFS creation command to allow time for the snapmirror to complete the update before creating the share. Does anyone know a way to check for the snapmirror update to be complete before continuing with the CIFS share create? I would rather to that instead of my existing way of using a sleep command. Thanks

Does the "Wait for SnapMirror initialization or resync" command provide what you are asking for? I believe that is what I use to validate that the SnapMirror update is complete prior to moving on to the next step in my workflows.

OK, I just tried that. I'm getting the error in this screenshot. The workflow is failing early in the planning step before anything really kicks off. This is strange because I'm using the same source and destination volume as I'm using in the 'transfer snapmirror' step. Any ideas?

I run into that as well. I would be interested to know if anyone has a real solution, but I just uncheck the "enable element existence validation" in the "Details" tab on workflows that it seems to pop up on.

Element existence validation is a preventive measure to help you avoid errors during execution. This is important because cleaning up a failed execution can be a cumbersome task.
So ideally there is NO need to uncheck this to proceed. If you have to, then there must be some mistake either in workflow design or bug command Reservation/Verification
I can help you understand it and find the root cause if you can provide your workflow here ( exported in .dar file format)
