I am testing vmware SRM and was able to fail over to the DR site. I tried to failback and it failed.
The way it is sitting now is the VM is running at the DR site, and everything was reversed on the protection plan.
Trying to do a recovery and it fails with "Error - Failed to sync data on replica device '/vol/DDC_TestDev_SRM/DDC_TestDev_SRM'. Device found is neither of the SAN type nor of the NAS type. Ensure that the device exists on the storage array and is of type NAS or SAN."
When I look at the snapmirror.conf on the DR netapp, I do not see any entry for this, but in on command under SnapMirror it is listed and the trasfer status is "ok"
Any help is appreciated!

And this is a recovery, not a test right? Did you generate the VMware Site Recovery Manger Log Bundle? SAN or NFS?
If iSCSI, go under Host and Clusters\ESXi host\Configuration\Storage Adapters and verify you have a mounted iSCSI adapter.

If you look on the DR Storage Array, do you actually see the device? That is a common error listed on the SRA IAG and the corrective action is to "Ensure that the device exists on the storage array and is of type NAS or SAN."

Definitely not. As a matter of fact the testing workflow requires a FlexClone license but the other workflows (Recovery\Reprotect) do not I am thinking there may have been an issue with the igroup you were using.
