cDOT Create new snapmirror relation using snapmirror-create API

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a perl script to create new snapmirror relations in clustered ONTAP 8.1.2

Below is the XML code i have built using "Zedi" tool.

I get an error while running this code:

results errno='13115' status='failed' reason='Element "source-cluster" within "snapmirror-create" has been excluded by another element.'/>

 

 

  <snapmirror-create>

    <destination-cluster>godzilla-mgmt</destination-cluster>

    <destination-location>godzilla-mgmt://godzilla/voltron_voltron_0046r</destination-location>

    <destination-volume>voltron_voltron_0046r</destination-volume>

    <destination-vserver>godzilla</destination-vserver>

   

    <relationship-type>data_protection</relationship-type>

   

   

    <source-cluster>voltron-mgmt</source-cluster>

    <source-location>voltron-mgmt://voltron/voltron_0046</source-location>

    <source-volume>voltron_0046</source-volume>

    <source-vserver>voltron</source-vserver>

    <tries>8</tries>

    <vserver>g</vserver>

  </snapmirror-create>

 

Please guide what am i doing wrong above.

Re: cDOT Create new snapmirror relation using snapmirror-create API

The documentation for source-location states:

When specifying a source endpoint, you must use either the source location, or the source cluster, source Vserver, and source volume.

It's not worded very clearly, but you should either specify source-location (in the form of [cluster:]//vserver/volume), or specify source-cluster, source-vserver, and source-volume. Don't specify both groups.

The same is true for the destination-location element.
