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

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

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>
