I'm now trying to add my snapmirror runs into the snapcreator configuration. I am getting an error due to the snapmirror configurations using multipathing, so the error reads that the source filer does not match the configuration file :
OUTPUT: Snapmirror error: source specified does not match configuration file
I have two controllers, local source (V3140) : lv-netapp-controllera, destination at remote site over LES (FAS3140) : dr-na-ctla. Both are able to replicate data on a private VLAN. The data ports of the filers are not accessible via the main VLAN. If I had to use the main VLAN my only path would be via the 100Mb/sec e0M ports, so that would be unacceptable. The VLAN design has been mandated by our network people. So my snapmirror configuration is specified using a multipath. Snapmirror scheduling is switched off in anticipation of it being driven by snapcreator from OS cron.
Both filers are set in NTAP_USERS to be accessed via the normal VLAN by the Linux server running snapcreator. The snapmirror config was added to the snapcreator config and verified by the snapcreator GUI.
You are fine 🙂 You just need to use SECONDARY_INTERFACES parameter. This is advanced option and cannot be set from GUI. SC by default will only use default interface for snapmirror which in your case is 100MB and you want to use a secondary interface.
Thanks Keith, I'll try that on Monday morning when I'm back in the office.
One thing occurs to me though. As normal snapmirror sessions are initiated from the destination filer wouldn't it be more practical to specify your snapmirrors in a snapcreator config in terms of their destinations rather than the sources. After all, snapcreator ends up using ZAPI to initiate the snapmirror on the destination filer. Am I missing something?
