Get-NaSnapshot timed out.


Hello All,

I'm experiencing timeout errors with the Get-NaSnapshot command against our FAS2040 filers but not our FAS3170 MetroCluster. They are running slightly different versions of OnTap so I was wondering whether this is a bug in OnTap or is related to the hardware. The error I receive is:

> Get-NaSnapshot vFilerName

Get-NaSnapshot : Connection to vfiler_name on port 80 for protocol HTTP timed out.

I can connect to the filer without any problem:

> Connect-NaController vFilerName -Credential (Get-Credential)

Name                 Address           Ontapi   Version

----                 -------           ------   -------

vFilerName        1.13     NetApp Release 8.0.3RC1 7-Mode: Tue Feb 14 22:32:14 PST 2012 Multistore

Other command also work ok:

> Get-NaVol

vol06      online         4.9 TB   13%     4.3 TB  True          2M        32M aggr_sata03

Pulling the list of snapshots back using SSH works in just a few seconds:

> Invoke-NaSsh -Controller vFilerName -Credential (Get-Credential) -Command "snap list vol06"

Volume vol06


  %/used       %/total  date          name

----------  ----------  ------------  --------

  0% ( 0%)    0% ( 0%)  Dec 11 00:00  nightly.1     

The MetroCluster, on which the command works fine is running a slightly earlier version of OnTap:

> Connect-NaController vFilerMCName -Credential (Get-Credential)

Name                 Address           Ontapi   Version

----                 -------           ------   -------

Any help would be much appreciated.




Re: Get-NaSnapshot timed out.


Hi Mark,

maybe you can avoid the timeout problem by increasing the "$global:CurrentNaController.TimeoutMsec" variable, like explained in this post:

Thanks Jürgen,

That's done the trick. Still seems odd that returning the data over SSH takes less than a second but returning it using the commandlets takes over 10 minutes in some cases.
