can't Delete protection relationship

GuyAnch

Hi,

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.

Hi,

 

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>

 

Also, take a look at this thread: Just for reference purpose.
