SnapRestore License is require in SRM?

Hi Guys,

 

Our infra is using NetApp storage (NFS) with VMware.

Whenever I perform 1st attempt Recovery in SRM, it appeared the errors,

 

Error: Failed to promote replica devices. Failed to promote replica device '//xxxxxx/xxxxxxx_vol01', SRA command 'failover' failed for device '//xxxxxx/xxxxxxx_vol01'.

The SnapRestore license is not present Ensure that the SnapRestore license is enabled.

 

When I perform 2nd attempt, it able to perform faiover to recovery sites.

 

Is there any idea? Why the 1st attempt need SnapRestore enabled?

SRM not only using SnapMirror?

 

Need help..


Thanks.

Hi,

 

A SnapRestore license is required on the NetApp system only NON-QUIESCED SMVI SNAPSHOT RECOVERY. This feature is not available in NetApp FAS/V-Series Storage Replication Adapter 2.0 for SRM 5. Refer the TR 3671

 

Hope this help.

Re: SnapRestore License is require in SRM?

I'm using NetApp FAS/V-Series Storage Replication Adapter 2.1 for SRM 5.5

However, when I perform recovery..

 

the error show that, i do not have the snaprestore license.

When I perform 2nd attempt, it can pass thru.

 

Any idea what's wrong? why snaprestore will use in this senario?

I am having the exact same problem on SRM 6.1, SRA 2.1.0.1, and NetApp Cluster Mode 8.3.2.  Has anyone found a solution to this?
