Site Recovery Manager 4 , Failed to test DR Plan


Hi communities,

Environnement with ESX 3.5 U4, VCenter 4, SRM 4.0, SRA SAN 1.4, SnapMirror, FlexClone.

When i launch test plan, the task "prepare storage" failed with non fatal error.

SRM log say "no such lun exist".

Sample of the log :

[#2]    dynamicType = <unset>,
[#2]    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,
[#2]    faults = (vmodl.MethodFault) [
[#2]       (dr.san.fault.ExecutionError) {
[#2]          dynamicType = <unset>,
[#2]          faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,
[#2]          errorMessage = "testFailover Output:

[#2] }

It seems that there is an error in the script but where ....

Flexclone operation, onlining lun, mapping lun to igroup, rescan storage adpater in manual mode are OK.

Someone have already seen this problem ?





support Netapp said that it's fixed in the next release of the SRA 1.4.1



Hi all,

with a colleague we modify the perl script and now test failover is ok

of course the new script is not supported by Netapp.

If your are interested, please send me a private message



Hi all,

the new release "Disaster Recovery Adapter for VMware SRM 1.4.2" San Adapter is available for download on now.netapp.com
