I'm hoping somebody can clear something up for me. We manage 96 filers, all of which are monitored by Oncommand Unified Manager/DFM. We have a lot of snapmirrors from remote sites back to larger filers at our main data centers which appear as External relationships and don't appear in DP Transfer Mirror reports.
Recently though we have deployed 3 FAS2220 filers configured the same as the previous 85 FAS2040 filers and those snapmirrors DO appear in the DP Transfer Mirror Reports. I have checked licensing and options and haven't found any significant differences between the filers. All are running Ontap 8.1.2p4 and are licensed for Protection Manager and operations manager.
Hi Adai, thanks for the reply. Below is the information you requested.
OCUM version is 5.2
Not sure which option you mean
For the FAS2040 filers, none of the snapmirrors are managed by OCUM/Protection Manager. In other words, the snapmirror relationships existed prior to us implementing OCUM show as external relationships in OCUM/NMC, have not been imported into a dataset and are managed by the snapmirror.conf file. All filers are monitored by OCUM.
All the snapmirrors are VSMs.
