Recently I have installed an additional cluster machine into an existing backup cluster. We now have a total of 3 clusters. Cluster A is a filer that Snapvaults to Cluster B. I have added a new machine Cluster C into the setup for backup. Cluster B will Snapmirror to Cluster C. I have purchased and installed Snapmirror/vault licenses on all 3 machines. Everything is working nicely between A and B. I have setup the intracluster relationship between B and C and the relationship status is good between the new machines.
When I try to create a Snapmirror relationship between B and C after a long pause in the ONTAP 9 GUI reports "Snapmirror license is not available" warning in the GUI. I have double checked in the GUI my license for Snapmirror on all machines and they are installed correctly. Does this mean I require an additional Snapmirror license for the B and C clusters?
I think it might be better to make a new post instead of replying to this one. In general, the port speed difference will not cause a license error.
I would suggest you run "system license show" on all three clusters and verify that there are snapmirror licenses installed for each node on each cluster - the system will let you install licenses for nodes not in the cluster, so if there is any mixup, the licenses may show but not be in effect.
