I am trying to perform cascading and I got the snapshot to be taken on the primary then SV to the secondary. Lastly, I want to perform a SM from the secondary to the DR site. When I try to add the secondary NetApp storage volume (the source volume), it won't let me drag it over to the SnapMirror window.
The SnapMirror relationship is already setup between the source and destination:
I changed the "SnapMirror setting" to allow SnapMirror updates.
Primary backup (hwducsnetapp01) then SV to "ASCNETAPP1" and SM to "ASCNETAPP2".... not sure why it's trying to get the relationship status from primary. I want SM to check the relationship between "ASCNETAPP1" and "ASCNETAPP2"

Thanks for the quick response. I noticed inside the configuration file, the cascading field was empty. I manually entered the SnapMirror source (the SV destination) and volume but it was still failing. It keeps trying to check the SnapVault source instead of the SV destination storage system.
Re: SC - unable to drag a volume into SnapMirror pane
Had to edit the NTAP_SNAPMIRROR_UPDATE=N, then manually edit the cascading field. The cascading storage system should be the SnapMirror source/volume. Funny enough, when you make these edits and reload the config, it does not show this information under "Volumes" tab.
