Nayab -

7-Mode ?

Can you copy the full err message ?

Have you tried using the Syslog Translator on mysupport.netapp.com ?

Did you set:

options snapvault.enable

options snapvault.access

There's all of the documentation available in the Data Protection Guide:

I hope this response has been helpful to you.

that's pretty much the default error when snapvault does not work

if you can ping the source filer from the destination, then it is probably a permission or config issue.

as Eugene already said, check snapvault.access. for testing, set options snapvault.access * on both source and target.

and besides snapvault.enable, also check if options licensed_feature.nearstore_option.enable is on.

if that does not work, we need more info:

Ontap version

what's your exact commandline

snapvault status

Hi Dominic,

I have checked all the options above and i see its still failing with the same error

Ontap Version :- 8.1.4 - 7Mode

From the secondary filer :- snapvault start -S sourcefiler:sourcevol destfiler:destvol ( As above )

Snapvault status sowing the operation is aborting .........

Thanks,

Nayab

btw: you don't need to take a screenshot in putty. just select the text and it will be in the clipboard

maybe snapmirror.log can give some more info. snapvault does also log into /etc/log/snapmirror.log.0000000XXX file.

find the log file with the highest number and do rdfile on it:

priv set advanced

ls /etc/log/

rdfile /etc/log/snapmirror.log.0000000XXX

then post the output here.

I don't suppose you are fiddling with MTU sizes, right?
