Created a volume with type DP , trying to convert into RW

SrinivasAre

I have created a volume with DP to snapmirror and realized I don't need to do the snapmirror. Now I am converting into RW using mount command and it is failing even though there is no relationship, tried to release by running break command (obviously it failed as no relationship exists).

 

volume mount -volume  myvol -junction-path /x/y

Error: command failed: Volume myvol in Vserver "abc" is not mountable until a "snapmirror initialize" has been completed.

 

snapmirror break myvol
Operation is queued: snapmirror break for destination "abc:myvol".
Error: command failed: Volume abc:myvol is not initialized.

 

How to achieve this ?

Summary :

1. create a volume with DP

2. Want to convert back to RW

 

Didn't established snapmirror relationship...just an FYI.

 

Regards,

Srini

i think you must delete it and re-create it in cdot (or set snapmirror and delete it...)

Since there is no data on the volume - SnapMirror was never initialized - you can just go ahead and recreate it.
