SnapMirror delete operation fails in takover state

Contributors netapp-lenida Download PDF of this page

Issue:

When ONTAP 9.9.1 is installed on a cluster, executing the snapmirror delete command fails when an SM-BC consistency group relationship is in takeover state.

Example:
C2_cluster::> snapmirror delete  vs1:/cg/dd

Error: command failed: RPC: Couldn't make connection
Solution

When the nodes in an SM-BC relationship are in takeover state, perform the SnapMirror delete and release operation with the "-force" option set to true.

Example:
C2_cluster::> snapmirror delete  vs1:/cg/dd -force true

Warning: The relationship between source "vs0:/cg/ss" and destination
         "vs1:/cg/dd" will be deleted, however the items of the destination
         Consistency Group might not be made writable, deletable, or modifiable
         after the operation. Manual recovery might be required.

Operation succeeded: snapmirror delete for the relationship with destination "vs1:/cg/dd".
