I'm not sure about terms I'm using, but I'm pretty sure you will understand.
Here is an extract of the snapvault status -l
Status: Idle with restart checkpoint
Progress: 20704640 KB
Mirror Timestamp: -
Base Snapshot: -
Current Transfer Type: Retry
Current Transfer Error: cannot connect to source filer (<-- I stopped the Snapvault Process Manager service on the server, so this state is normal)
Last Transfer Type: -
Last Transfer Size: -
Last Transfer Duration: 00:00:00
Last Transfer From: -
There are 65 GB to transfer, ans it takes too much time (the source server is used nearly 22h/24)
I would like to cancel this snapvault and re-create it using the -k parameter, in order to limit the used bandwith, so data could be transferred while users are working on the server
1) How can I cancel this snapvault (using command line or NetApp Management Console) ?
2) How can I re-create it using the -k parameters ?
(I tried snapvault start –k 2000 -S source:path destination:path but I've got this answer
Too many arguments.
This command is available only on a snapvault secondary.
snapvault start [-r [-f]] [-w] [-k <kbs>] [-t <n>] [-p <conn_mode>] [-o <options>] [-S [<primary_system>:]<primary_path>] [<secondary_filer>:]<secondary_path>
where <options> is <opt_name>=<opt_value>[[,<opt_name>=<opt_value>]...]
For more information about the available options, please see the
SnapVault man page.)
Please follow the steps in the link https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMM1278866/html/install/manage8.htm
I'm a bit puzzled...
This article explain you need to delete the relationship from the "secondary storage system".
I have only one Windows server, and one FAS2220.
In the relationship, I specify :
- the location of the data I want to backup (the "source" ?) = a directory on my Windows server
- the location where I want it to be backuped (the "destination" ?) = a Qtree on my FAS2220
I'm a bit confused with NettApp terminology "primary storage system", "filer", ...
"secondary" == "destination"
"primary" == "source"
You are apparently using Open Systems SnapVault, in this case primary is "normal" host (Windows/Unix) and secondary is FAS (always).
I hope it will be clearer for me now..
I'll try some command lines and we will see if it works
