How/what is the network setup between the two systems? Is there a firewall between them? If so, are the required ports open? Found this article: https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1011333 Something else to check, has snapmirror.access been setup on each system so they can talk to each other?
bnot sure what happened. it seems to be working now. but I am trying to setup a ms cluster across sites so I have snapmirror from source vol to destination vol. when i failover the ms cluster resource from source to destination, the destination drive remains as eadable only and not writable. what do I have to do to make that writable?
You'll have to break the SnapMirror (or clone the destination possibly). If this is a SnapManager program, which should be utilizing SnapDrive, SnapDrive should be able to break the mirror from what I've glimpsed over documentation wise...
This is the procedure if you want to make the snapmirror destination volume writable:
1. Verify the status of the snapmirrors
Source> snapmirror status (if possible)
Dest> snapmirror status
2. Finish writes to fas1_vol1
Dest> snapmirror quiesce source_vol1
3. Break volume fas1_vol1 from the snapmirror relationship
FAS2> snapmirror break source_vol1
1. Verify the status of the snapmirrors. SnapMirror must be on.
Dest> snapmirror status
2. Finishes any write activity and then disables further updates
Dest> snapmirror quiesce /vol/vol0/mymirror
3. Break the snapmirror relationship
Dest> snapmirror break Dest:/vol/vol0/mymirror
After using the snapmirror break command to temporarily break a SnapMirror relationship between a source and destination, you can use other SnapMirror commands to either make the break permanent, or restore or redefine the SnapMirror relationship.
• Use the snapmirror release command to make the break permanent.
• Use the snapmirror resync command to restore or redefine the SnapMirror relationship.
