Issue

When attempting to initialize a SnapMirror relationship where the source volume is also a destination for an active SnapMirror type TDP (AKA transition) relationship, the following error message is reported

  • Failed to get information for source volume TDPDest_vServer:TDPDest_Vol for confirmation.(Source TDPDest_vServer:TDPDest_Vol is a transition volume) Using a transition volume as a SnapMirror source volume is not supported.
  •  [<NODE>: repl_Handle_reg: repl.src.snaps.check.failed:error]: SnapMirror operation failed because the reference and/or the transfer Snapshot copies on the source volume are either a) from a release prior to Data ONTAP 8.2 b) captured in a nonclustered format c) not upgraded to dual inode space. These Snapshot copies cannot be used for logical transfer.
