Hi Everyone, I am currently moving some data from an old FAS2020 running ontap 7.3.7P2 to a FAS2220 running ontap 8.1.4.P2-7-Mode. I am having no issues snapmirroring the volumes to the new filer, and then sharing them out. My issue is when I wan to setup a new snapmirror relationship from the new filer to a third filer for DR.
I am trying to snapmirror my 64bit volumes on the FAS2220 to my FAS2040 running ontap 7.3.4. I am getting the error "Data ONTAP API Failed :Snapmirror error: incompatible snapmirror versions on systems (Error: 13102)".
My question is this, is the issue due to incompatible ontap versions, or is it that I cannot snapmirror from my 64ibt system to the 32bit system?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much in advance.
As a side note, if I were to do a qtree snapmirror from the source 32bit volume on the old 7.3.4 filer to a 64bit volume on the new 8.1.4P2 filer, would that achieve the same goal as the volume snapmirror?
Re: Snapmirror from OnTap 8.1.4P2 to OnTap 7.3.7P2
That obviously depends on goal. For a start, QSM does not replicate existing snapshots nor can it be cascaded. Replicating non-qtree data is possible, but reverting such replication - not. Etc ... It is up to you to decide whether QSM can fulfill your requirements.
