Unbale to delete vserver (cDOT 8.2.1P3)

connoisseur

Hi!

 

I have a bunch of vservers which are peered to a secondary site for snapvault.

 

I´m trying to delete two of them but keep getting error message telling me that I can´t delete a Vserver that is part of a Vserver peer or transition peer relationship.

But it´s not.

 

These are the steps I´ve taken.

* check and release snapmirror relationship on primary
* check and delete snapmirror relationship on secondary
* delete peer relationship (on both clusters)
* unmount namespace
* take all volumes related to vserver offline and then deleted them

* deleted the cifs server

* stopped the vserver.

 

But when I try to delete it , from System Manager or CLI, i get the message about peer.

 

When I do a vserver peer show, there is now peers on either cluster pointing to the vserver I intent to delete?

Thank you so very much.

 

This was a a legacy from a 7-mode transition we did last summer.

I checked the transition output and it pointed to an old 7-mode system.

 

Deleted it and now it works.

 

Thanks again
