View grid federation connections

Contributors netapp-madkat netapp-perveilerk

If your tenant account has the Use grid federation connection permission, you can view the allowed connections.

Before you begin
  1. Select STORAGE (S3) > Grid federation connections.

    The Grid federation connection page appears and includes a table that summarizes the following information:

    Column Description

    Connection name

    The grid federation connections this tenant has permission to use.

    Buckets with cross-grid replication

    For each grid federation connection, the tenant buckets that have cross-grid replication enabled. Objects added to these buckets will be replicated to the other grid in the connection.

    Last error

    For each grid federation connection, the most recent error to occur, if any, when data was being replicated to the other grid. See Clear the last error.

  2. Optionally, select a bucket name to view bucket details.

Clear the last error

An error might appear in the Last error column for one of these reasons:

  • The source object version was not found.

  • The source bucket was not found.

  • The destination bucket was deleted.

  • The destination bucket was re-created by a different account.

  • The destination bucket has versioning suspended.

  • The destination bucket was re-created by the same account but is now unversioned.

Note This column only shows the last cross-grid replication error to occur; previous errors that might have occurred will not be shown.
  1. If a message appears in the Last error column, view the message text.

    For example, this error indicates that the destination bucket for cross-grid replication was in an invalid state, possibly because versioning was suspended or S3 Object Lock was enabled.


  2. Perform any recommended actions. For example, if versioning was suspended on the destination bucket for cross-grid replication, reenable versioning for that bucket.

  3. Select the connection from the table.

  4. Select Clear error.

  5. Select Yes to clear the message and update the system's status.

  6. Wait 5-6 minutes and then ingest a new object into the bucket. Confirm that the error message does not reappear.

    Note To ensure the error message is cleared, wait at least 5 minutes after the timestamp in the message before ingesting a new object.
  7. To determine if any objects failed to be replicated because of the bucket error, see Identify and retry failed replication operations.
