Help with Snapmirror error: Failed to create Snapshot (Invalid Argument)

Hi,

 

Having trouble with a snapmirror update not completing. It fails with the following error:

 

Failed to create Snapshot copy on volume [svm]:[volume] (Failed to create Snapshot copy on volume b079364c-3655-11e7-b5b9-00a09897da7d:[volume] (Invalid argument)

 

Can't seem to find any info as to what that means, and why it's happening.

 

Replication is happening between to different countries via VPN. I have about 7 volumes replicating. This is the only one that fails.

 

Any pointers?

 

Thanks.

Re: Help with Snapmirror error: Failed to create Snapshot (Invalid Argument)

Hi,

 

So I managed to resolve this, but realized I hadn't updated the forum post. Just needed to throttle the failing snapmirror relationship a little and it stopped failing. So, issue resolved.

 

Thanks for the response though.

 

Cheers.
