Error when running the "Wait for SnapMirror initialization or resync" command

Jim_Robertson

I am running into an issue when trying to us the built in command, "Wait for SnapMirror initialization or resync" in WFA 4.1 and OnTap 9.1P5.  I have older workflows that I inherited that use the command without any issue.  The workflow creates a new volume, then uses the built in command "Create Snapmirror" to create a Snapmirror relationship and Initialize it.  It completes that fine, but then errors out on the Wait for SM Initialization command.  I don't understand why it works for the old workflow, but fails for the new one.  I can't see anything different.

I tried doing a test on just the command, and I am getting the following errors:
14:55:47.069 INFO  [Wait for SnapMirror initialization or resync] ### Command 'Wait for SnapMirror initialization or resync' in 'POWER_SHELL' ###

It seems like it sees that the SM completed successfully, but then errors out after that.  If I try putting the command into Powershell (which I setup accodring to these instructions http://www.wfaguy.com/2017/08/debug-wfa-in-your-powershell-editor.html) and run it from there, it fails on this Set-WfaCommandProgress command:

 E:\Powershell> Set-WfaCommandProgress -Total 1 -Current 1 -ProgressPercentage 100 -Note $bytesTransferredMessage

Set-WfaCommandProgress : Execution URI input line was not set.

At line:1 char:1

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-WfaCommandProgress], Exception

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.Exception,WFA.SetWfaCommandProgress



Any idea why I might be getting this message?

Interestingly enough, for the new workflow, I put a Sleep command between the Snapmirror creation and the Wait for Initialization command, and the workflow completed successfully.  I can't understand why that would make a difference, because I thought the Wait command would account for different states of the Snapmirror?

It should, you may have to increase the wait time in the wait command.

Sleep is putting additional wait time.
