SMO clone create error




We use two Nseries N6240, the 1a and 2a, we have a oracle database, wich volumes are located only on one array, the 2a, we script the cloning process with SMO 3.2 on AIX 6.1, when trying to clone from server sl2206 to server sl1206,

we get the following error :


[ INFO] SMO-13049: Elapsed Time: 0:00:12.007 Operation Id [8afa8c904f410966014f41096a370001] failed.

when ruuning the snadrive command :  snapdrive snap show -fs /sl2206/oracle/OWDPY/ora  we get the snapshot.

when running manualy the command reported in error message :


/usr/sbin/snapdrive snap connect -fs /sl2206/oracle/OWDPY/ora /sl1206/oracle/OWPYINF/ora -snapname n6240-2a:/vol/vol_2206_2_OWDPY_indx:smo_owdpyinf_1206_d_h_1_8afa8ccc4f698b03014f698b07ca0001_0 -autorename -noreserve -prefixfv SnapManager_20150826122717566


it seems we don't get any error :


connecting vgorajdeFRPY:

        disk group vgorajdeFRPY_0 containing host volumes
                lvoradtapy_0 (filesystem: /sl1206/oracle/OWPYINF/ora)



so, does SMO need the volumes of the DB to be present on the two array to allow cloning ? is it the reason of the error ?


thank you
