I am trying to use Powershell with Snapcenter 4.3 to create clones of the mirror copy of my backups. I am able to take the database backup and to clone the backup from the primary storage, but I am getting errors when trying to clone the backup.
This cmd successfully allows me to take a backup of one of my SQL databases which is spanned across 2 luns/vols:
"Failed on 'sqlclus-tst-1': Activity 'Discover Secondary Snapshot' failed with error: Archived locator match is not found in discovered secondary snapshot locators. Please verify configured clone dataset archived locators with secondary mirror or vault relationships. Clone Dataset Archived Locator: SVM: SVM2, Volume: tst_sql_sqlldf < - > Discovered Secondary Locator: SVM IRV-NC3-002, Volume: tst_sql_046047_sqlmdf"
I am using 2 LUNs/vols for this database as noted above, but the process succeeds when run on the primary storage (SVM1) but fails here when run on the snapmirror destination copy on SVM2 (SVM 2 is a on a different node using different aggr.)
I know this is an old post, but we have a very similar issue. How to I determine if my problem has to do with our Snapcenter system not meeting best practices. One thing, I can run a clone lifecycle job using the UI with no problem. But we need more flexibility so want to create a powershell script to do the same thing. Any ideas welcome. -- Thanks!
