first of all i am new to netapp. currently using NetApp Data ONTAP 7.
It is showing snapvault status as Idle and state as SOURCE. is it critical or can we ignore this.
if it is critical please guide me how to troubleshoot this problem.
sannas01> snapvault status Snapvault is ON. Source Destination State Lag Status sannas01:/vol/vol1/Shared lvnnas01:/vol/sv_san_vol1/Shared Source 10:42:43 Idle sannas01> snapvault status -s Snapvault is ON. Volume Snapshot Status Schedule ------ -------- ------ -------- vol1 sv_vol1_nightly Idle 3@2 sannas01> snapvault status -t Snapvault is ON. There are no active transfers.
As noted above, user / admin guides will help clarify things immensely.
In terms of SnapVault and SnapMirror status - IDLE status is fine, noting the amount of lag is a good key indicator of an issue. If the lag time is less than the time frame of the schedule (if it is a daily vault and the lag time is less than 24 hours), then usually everything is ok.
If there are other issues, the status will reflect that.
