Filer2> snapmirror initialize -S Filer1:vol34 Filer2:vol25
Fri Sep 28 07:28:13 GMT [Filer2: replication.dst.err:error]: SnapMirror: destination transfer from Filer1:vol34 to vol25 : could not find source filer.
Transfer aborted: could not find source filer.
Can Someone help me over the above, i have entries in both the filers but a ping is not working ...
Filer1> rdfile /etc/snapmirror.allow
Filer1> ping Filer2
ping: unknown host: Filer2
Filer2> rdfile /etc/snapmirror.allow
Filer2> ping Filer1
ping: unknown host: Filer1

Have you got relevant records for both filers on your DNS servers? E.g. can you resolve Filer1 & Filer2 (or ping) from any host sitting on the same subnet?
Also how about DNS on the filer itself? What's the output of:
Filer1> dns info

I'd start with adding static entries for both filers on your DNS server.
Then on the filers you can use System Manager GUI to set up DNS. Or set DNS options via CLI - to display them first type:
Filer1> options dns
2012-09-28 02:05 AM
Filer2> options dns.enable on
** Option dns.enable is being set to "on", but this conflicts
** with a line in /etc/rc that sets it to "off".
** Options are automatically persistent, but the line in /etc/rc
** will override this persistence, so if you want to make this change
** persistent, you will need to change (or remove) the line in /etc/rc.
