snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Hi all, looking for a little help wih getting snap creator working on one of our domino servers.


We're using the exact same configuration, snap creator version, java version, snap drive version as on other domino servers where snap creator is working.


Software versions on server

Java 7 Update 79(64 bit)
Snap Creator Framework 4.1.1
Snapdrive 7.1.1.6640

Domino Product Version 9.0.14.15158


Attached is a log file of the backup I manually started last night. Any help appreciated.


Thanks

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

I have already tried upgrading to snapcreator 4.1.2 to no avail.

 

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

It looks like your domino backup (quiesce) takes longer than 5 minutes as observed from the logs.

 

You may edit your config file and set 

SC_AGENT_TIMEOUT=3600

 

The default value is 5 minutes or 300 seconds.

Here we can set to an hour (3600 seconds) and try a backup again

 

 

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Hi Sivar, thanks for the reply however I have already adjusted that threshold and this made no difference.

 

Here's what I have it set at

 

#     Agent Options                                                                                                    #
########################################################################################################################
SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT=305
SC_AGENT_WATCHDOG_ENABLE=N
SC_AGENT=domino01.domain.co.uk:9090
SC_AGENT_LOG_ENABLE=Y
SC_AGENT_TIMEOUT=3600

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Not sure how relevant this is but I noticed the wrapper.exe process does not run during the backup process

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

I reviewed the logs again.

########## Application Quiesce ##########

Looks like exactly after 5 minutes 19 seconds a watchdog operation has killed the running operation. (backup)

 

But, interestingly your config file does not even have watchdog enabled.

 

I am thinking we can try the below

SC_AGENT_WATCHDOG_ENABLE=Y

SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT=3605

 

Thanks,
Siva Ramanathan

 

 

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

correcting my own statement

 

as per

https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1650312/html/GUID-382C4683-8746-406C-82C3-DF3DA782DCD2.html

 

Note: SC_AGENT_WATCHDOG_ENABLE is deprecated for use with Snap Creator Agent 4.1, and applicable only for use with Agent 4.0.

 

Hence, you may just set

SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT=3605

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Hi Sava, unquiesce is not the issue unfortunately it is the quiesce stage.

 

Here's an extract from another of our domino servers having the same issue

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

During my internal bug search on this error, I did see a bug that seems to have been fixed with an upcoming release 5.0

 

Meanwhile, please share me the values below from your etc/agent.properties file (this file is in the agent install folder on the domino server)

OPERATION_TIMEOUT_IN_MSEC

WRAPPER_TIMEOUT_IN_MSEC

 

Thanks,
Siva Ramanathan

 

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Thanks Siva, when is 5.0 due for release ?

 

Sure, here's the whole log file

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT is infact for the quiesce operation.

Basically telling the plugin (watchdog) to wait this long for the quiesce operation and if the quiesce is taking longer, then the watchdog takes the database out of hotbackup mode.

 

I see your current value is 5 minutes SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT

So, pelase try increasing that value to 1 hour as suggested earlier, and let me know the results.

 

I am enquiring the developers/TME about 5.0 release date.

 

I shall update as soon as I learn more.

 

Thanks,

Siva Ramanathan

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

It fails immediately at the quiesce stage, as I could read from the logs.

May I request you to register a case with NetApp support and work with the support engineer?

 

Also, I was advised by our TME that 5.0 is an internal version number and you need to setup a NDA call to discuss the roadmap items.

 

Sorry, I could not be of more help here.


Thanks,

Siva Ramanathan

 

Re: snap creator 4.1.1 failing to quiesce domino

Thanks Siva I will log a call with NetApp
