Using ONTAP 9.x with two cluster having SVM data protection I can't delete data relationship. I get the following erorr message when trying to build a new relationship even though the previous SVM protection is not listed as part of the "SVM DR Relationships"
Failed to create SVM relationship. Failed to create Vserver relationship information. Reason: Source Vserver "svmXXX" is already in a Vserver DR relationship with another Vserver in this cluster.
Have you made sure the relationship you are trying to delete is 'broken-off' (assuming you don't need it)?
Just run this command to sanity check the relationship's state: ::> snapmirror list-destinations
And depending upon their state, use the commands appropriately. ::> snapmirror break -destination-path <vserver>:<path> ::> snapmirror delete -destination-path <vserver>:<path> ::> snapmirror release -destination-path <vserver>:<path>
