DFM snapmirror undeleted


Since I've created a new snapmirror relation to a DR vfiler, I got every 30min an alert from DMF (SnapMirror: Undeleted). The alert is referencing to a snapmirror ID which isn't exist anymore. (The alert is always referencing the the same ID)

May I ask you how I can definitely remove this kind of alert?

Is dfmpurge a good solution to run?

Thanks for your help.

Re: DFM snapmirror undeleted

Hi Samuel,

     What version are you running ?  I don't think dfmpurge will solve this.

BTW did you do a vFiler DR failover and failback ?



Re: DFM snapmirror undeleted


I'm using DFM 5.0.2 and ONTAP 8.1.2P4.

No, I didn't activate the drvfiler already.

BTW, I'm starting a dfmpurge and will let you know the outcome.


Re: DFM snapmirror undeleted

Your guess was correct, the dfmpurge didn't get rid of these alert

Re: DFM snapmirror undeleted

The snapmirror baseload was done using multi IP, after that, the snapmirror relation was updated and multi IP was not used anymore.

After updating the snapmirror.conf file and put back on the snapmirror relation the multi IP I didn't receive anymore these kind of alert.

snapmirror.conf - Before:

filerA:vol_Test filerA_DR:vol_Test - 30 10,12,14,16,18,20,22 * *

snapmirror.conf - After:

filerA-FilerA_DR = multi(,

filerA-FilerA_DR:vol_Test filerA_DR:vol_Test - 30 10,12,14,16,18,20,22 * *
