I've set up a test lab for a vfiler migration as I need to do one in a few weeks time, but not having much success. Everytime I run vfiler migrate start vfilertest@ontapsim-01 I'm getting a connection refused error.
The simulators have been set up with the following configuration: (everything is images as I can't ssh directly into my test environment, using vsphere client to access)
When I run the vfiler migrate start command:
Any idea what Undefines error: 0 means?
Ping is working between both filers, I have also set up a snapmirror relationship between them to verify connectivity. I have set it up so that identical ipspace and volumes exists on both filers. Is there anything else I need to do?
By default, vfiler migrate uses rsh. With your syntax, you need to run "options rsh.enable on" on each node then it will work... but even better. "secureadmin setup ssl" then "secureadmin enable ssl"... then on your vfiler migrate start command add the parameter "-c secure" and it will use ssl.
Also...make sure you create the volumes of the same name on the target but don't initiate the mirrors...vfiler migrate will initiate.
If you use the vfiler migrate from the ONTAP CLI, you must pre-create the volumes with identical names and sizes as the source. If you are using the Provisioning Manager interface to vfiler migrate, it will create the volumes for you.
