Cannot Delete Qtree That Was a SnapVault Destination

Hello,

I am trying to destroy a snapvault relationship and recreate it. I have killed the relationship with the snapvault stop command on the destination and the snapvault release command on the source. When I try to recreate the relationship, the qtree is still there so it fails. I've gone to priv set advanced to delete the qtree directly with the qtree delete -f command, but I get "Read-only file system (37)". Any ideas?

What is the status of the volume at the destination? is it readonly?

I'm actually not sure how to determine if it's read-only. What's the command? We're on 8.2.4 7-mode.

Hi,

 

Can you give the output of snapvault status <secondarypath>..?

 

Is this a only qtree in a volume?

 

snapvault stop can take time to delete the qtree as it has to clear lot of data. You cannot delete this qtree manually.

Thank you for your replies. The issue was resolved - turns out that if I log into the SP and issue the snapvault stop command, it runs to completion. The management console was timing out the command but the SP doesn't. Thanks again!
