Snapvault Transfer Failed




Suddenly or at least without my knowledge of any change a dialy snapvault update stopped working. Even when forcing an update or a resync it still fails. 
Following are the properties of the snapvault at the destination. I'm running ONTAP 9.1. Has anyone went through this issue?

Many thanks in advance for the help!



This is not the answer, but it helps during troubleshooting. Try to set up a single snapvault relationship where source and target SVM's are the same as the one that now gives the message "Permission denied". It could just be that a certificate has expired or a password has to be changed because a security policy is active etc...




Thanks for your reply. The thing is we have several other snapvault relationshisp running ok and between the same SVMs. 😞


Do you use OCUM as a management tool? If yes, can you do a restore from the snapvault volume?




Meanwhile with no known reason a simple snapmirror update worked ok.

I don't have the root cause but it is working 😕


Thanks for the help!
