Issue

  • If the MDV (Metadata Volumes) is missing the system should be able to re-create them automatically.
  • A potential failure of the re-creation process on the source cluster can occur due to a 60 second timeout.
  • Due to the missing MDV volumes, SnapMirror updates will fail and reportedly, CIFS share access may be affected on the source cluster.
  • SnapMirror failure displayed on the destination cluster:

Failed to create snapshots. Metadata volume is not available on cluster "source". Run "snapmirror config-replication status "show" for more details.

  • Error on the SVMDR source cluster:

clus1-src::> snapmirror config-replication status show
                Enabled: true
                Running: false
         Storage Status: warning
         Storage In Use: Unavailable
