Incorrect status 'Failover in Progress' is reported for SRA in SRM

Contributors netapp-asubhas


VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) displays the status of the device as “In progress” for the newly SnapMirrored device.


This issue occurs due to the presence of an entry with the same device name as the newly created device in the /opt/netapp/vpserver/conf/devices.txt file.

Corrective action

You should manually delete the entries matching the device that you newly created from both the sites (site A and site B) from located at /opt/netapp/vpserver/conf/devices.txt and rerun discover devices. After the discovery completes, the devices will display the correct status.
