By the way, comibation of hostnames is correct? Both hostname can be resolved to IP address? Source IP is reachable from destination IP? Have you already added snapmirror.access?
1. Asuming that mypath = failover (SRC,DEST)(SRC-e0a,DEST-e0a) then, yes 2. I use host files: fil-01-p> ping fil-02-p fil-02-p.mydomain is alive fil-01-p> ping fil-02-p-e0a fil-02-p-e0a.mydomain is alive fil-02-p> ping fil-01-p fil-01-p.mydomain is alive fil-02-p> ping fil-01-p-e0a fil-01-p-e0a.mydomain is alive 3. yes they are reachable, if not I wouldn't be able to do snapmirror in the first place with the classic srcfilername:volume destfilername:volume with about 20 or so volumes. 4. snapmirror.access is legacy 5. snapmirror.allow have both hosts in both files - once again classic style snapmirror works without problems.
I tried following now: rep = failover(fil-02-p,fil-01-p)(fil-02-p-e0a,fil-01-p-e0a) rep:volname1 fil-01-p:volname1 compression=enable - 30 * * *
Don't really understand the idea behind it because you actually tell what src & dest is in the "rep" path. So how the hell would the filer know wether to take failover link or not? Like fil-01-p or fil-01-p-e0a as a destination?
Anyway the snapmirror update doesn't work either. The only thing that works is a:
----- You need to add this on snapmirror.conf if you want to execute snapmirror update
------ Probably the filername is fil-01-p and you are using specific hostnames (with specific ports) to replicate. Is that correct? Why not to add on /etc/hosts that rep is fil-01-p
Could you please try and let me know?
Oi Neto 😉
1. The title of the subject: Re: snapmirror compression 7-mode 8.x states clearly that I'm talking about 7-mode 😉 2. I did mention that this is already in snapmirror.conf of course: "This is my current configuration in snapmirror.conf:" where else should I put that in? 😉 3. I've got them in my /etc/hosts and I can resolve them via DNS. Both ways work. Current classical snapmirror is working fine. I need to figure how to snapmirror with the non traditional configuration so I can compress the transfer.
