What's in the snapmirror log in /etc/log.. You're not providing enough information

I dont see any log related to this neither on the source side or in the destination filer.

 

The only thing i see is this in the messages file

"Wed Oct  8 13:09:29 EDT [filer:replication.src.err:error]: SnapMirror: source transfer from filer to IP address:15x.18x.xxx.xx : transfer aborted because of network error."

Check your routing and interfaces.  9 times out of 10 its a routing issue unless there is some sort of firewall present as well.  Were the mirrors working before?

 

run these commands and send us the output.

ifconfig -a

rdfile /etc/rc

rdfile /etc/snapmirror.conf

rdfile /etc/hosts

route -s

Pawansaathi,

 

Are you doing a SnapMirror update or trying to initialize? If you're updating then I'm guessing it was working?

 

If this is a new snapmirror relationship did you create it in System Manager or manually through the /etc/snapmirror.conf file?

 

If you can ping the resources from your destination to source and source to destination then make sure DNS is configured correctly if using storage controller names.

 

Make sure the correct names and IP's are in the /etc/hosts files at both locations.

Im doing SnapMirror update and yes it was working perfectly fine before. I created the relationship manually through the snapmirror.conf file. I can ping from source to destination and vice versa. Hosts file looks okay and DNS also is configured properly.

The destination filer is located in India and the source filer is here in US, so im thinking it might be some kind of network limitations ???

 

Thanks,

Guys,

 

Since there is no reply on what was the cause im writng this as even i experienced the same situation.

The reason would be the source volume would be renamed or offline.
