SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Hi all,

I try to use SnapCreator 3.6.0 with Lotus Domino 8.5.3FP3 on a Windows Server 2008R2. All software versions are 64bit.

My NetApp Storage is FAS3220 with DOT 8.1.2 7-Mode.

Everything works correctly until taking snapshot, I get an error on the "Application unquiesce."

Here is the error log from the server SnapCreator:

########## Application unquiesce ##########

76 [Thu Feb 21 09:32:46 2013] ERROR: 500 Status read failed: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. at /<C:\Program Files\NetApp\NetApp_Snap_Creator_Framework\scServer3.6.0\snapcreator.exe>SnapCreator/Agent/Remote.pm line 541

80 ########## Application unquiesce ##########

 

Here is the error log ( event log) from the client SnapCreator:

Application Log:

(Press Retry to debug the application)

Do you have any idea?

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Cedric.

Re: SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

could you please set this in your config file and try this again?

SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT=1800

Looks like unquiescing takes long time.

Hello Siva,

I just applied this parameter, and no change.

SnapCreator & Domino crash always after taking snapshot.

The Domino server is almost empty, there is only one mailbox.

Do you have another idea ?

Thanks for tour help,

Re: SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Please request a NetApp Global Support case for this issue.

This might need further troubleshooting from our engineers.

Also, is this a VMware implementation? Are there RDM LUNs involved?

Re: SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Hello Siva,

There are 10 days ago, I opened a NetApp Case (P2 Level), and this time no return, from where my post on the community.

Absolutely, I use a type infrstructure Vmware ESXi 5.1 ( iSCSI datastores).

My Lotus-Domino Vms also use iSCSI luns via NetApp SnapDrive mode.

My Lotus-Domino is working in snapcreatoragent mode.

I have a master server to control the backup snapcreator for my 4 lotus-domino systems.

I followed the following Technicals Reports:

TR-3588  / TR-3756 / TR-3843 / TR-3883 / TR-3917 / TR-4009.

Best Regards,

Cedric.

Re: SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Thank you for the detail.

I am checking with my contacts.

1) Meanwhile, please supply me the Domino logs.

     C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Domino\data\ibm_technical_support\*.log

2) What Antivirus solution is used in these servers? are there any antivirus logs that could shed some light on this issue?

Thanks,
Siva Ramanathan

Hello,

All my research points to the DAOS feature.

From the console.log, I found this information below.

Re: SnapCreator 3.6.0 & Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Hi everybody,

I solved this issue.


I just changed in my Lotus/Domino configuration, the Domino logical links ( link to folder ) by a simply Windows mount points.


And now, it works perfectly ( snapshot / unqiesce / ... ).


Thank you to all those who have helped me.

Best Regards,

Cedric.
