SnapVault snapshots didn't create as expected on destination

FelixZhou

We are on AFF300 with OnTAP 9.8P2, tested a volume snapmirror & snapvault from a source cluster to a destination cluster.
But looks the snapvault snapshots never created on destination. Not sure what i missed.
Can someone please share your experience. Thanks in advance
Confirmed we do have snapvault license on both source and destination clusters.

Here is what i did.

1. peered Cluster and SVM
2. set  up a XDP snapmirror relationship on a testing volume
     * scheduled snapshot copies on source volume
policy default
schedule hourly 6; daily 2;weekly 2
snapmirror label daily, weekly
     * protection policy: Asynchronous
snapmirror lable: daily, weekly
retention count: 7, 52

Did you run snapmirror initialize command?   Just curious since you did not mention if you started the snapmirror.

snapmirror initialize -S <vserver:vol> -destination-path <vserver:vol> -type <type> -policy <smpolicy>

looks to make the snapvault to happen, the snapmirror data protection policy has to have same snapmirror label to match on source snapshot policy.
