I seem to be having issues with changing the bandwidth rate on snapmirror transfer jobs.
I have tried to change on both the source and destination filers using OCUM.
It's currently set to 80000 but want to change the changing the setting to use unlimited bandwidth, however once I change this it reverts back following a refresh.
It shows as unlimited bandwidth but once I refresh its reverted back to the original setting.
Does anyone know why this would occur?
you may have to check the setting in snapmirror.conf file
I checked the setting in the snapmirror conf file and it's set to 80000.
One thing I have noticed is I can only find the snapmirror.conf file on the destination filers and not the source. Is this normal?
I have checked in /etc/c$
That should be the reason which is not allowing you to change the setting.
Snapmirror uses a pull poperation from the destination storage controller, yes its normal.
Thanks for confirming that

Above is one of the lines from snapmirror config. Just to confirm I just need to remove kbs=80000 so it looks like below:
CENSLFASPROD02:NETAPP_prf2_esx_w2k3_sas_01 CENWBFASDR02:NETAPP_prf2_esx_w2k3_sas_01 * 6,12,18 * 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
Would that be correct?
